Hart leaving Rowan-Salisbury for Hickory schools

The Rowan-Salisbury School System’s assistant superintendent for adminstration will be leaving to take over the top spot at Hickory Public Schools.
The Hickory Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously Monday to hire Dr. Walter Hart as the new superintendent.
“I am thrilled to join Hickory Public Schools, I would like to thank the Board of Education for this tremendous opportunity and the trust that they have placed in me,” he said in a press release. “Throughout the selection process, it became clear that the board takes great pride in its schools and makes meeting the needs of children its top priority.”
Hart, who has worked for Rowan-Salisbury since 2007, will take the reins Nov. 1.
In his current role, he is responsible for supervising 35 principals, a student enrollment of about 20,000 and managing a $20 million budget.
Hart is the second-highest paid employee for Rowan-Salisbury schools behind Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom. His salary was more than $128,000 last year.
He is the second administrator to leave the district this year.
Gene Miller, the assistant superintendent of operations, retired at the end of August. He was the third-highest paid employee in the district, banking more than $123,000 last year.
