Former Wake schools' chief gets new job
Former Wake County superintendent Del Burns has been named the interim superintendent for the Alamance-Burlington School System, Board of Education member Patsy Simpson said Thursday.Posted — Updated
Burns will take over in January.
Burns is expected to be in the position for about six months while the board searches for a new superintendent, Simpson said. It is unclear if Burns plans to apply for the job on a permanent basis.
Simpson said Burns was a good choice because he had recent experience leading a school system and working with budgets.
Burns led the Wake County school system for four years. He resigned in February when the school board moved from a diversity-based student assignment plan to a community-based model.
