Byerly retiring from Kannapolis schools
KANNAPOLIS ó Kannapolis City Schools Superintendent Dr. Jo Anne Byerly announced today that she will step down at the end of the current school year.
Byerly has served the public schools of North Carolina for 39 years and has been with Kannapolis City Schools since 1976. Her last day will be June 30, 2010.
“I have been truly blessed to be a part of Kannapolis City Schools for 33 years, and I’m so proud of what our students and staff have accomplished,” Byerly said in a Kannapolis City Schools press release announcing her retirement.
“I love this school system, and I’ll always be a part of it. But after almost 40 years in education, I feel it’s time for me to spend more time with my family and to let someone else have the chance to lead this wonderful school system,” Byerly said. “We’ve got an outstanding school board, and I know they’ll choose an excellent person to take my place.”
