Bob Pruitt has been named as the new supervisor of secondary education for Robertson County Schools, replacing Bill Locke, who will be retiring at the end of this school year.
Pruitt has served RCS for 16 years as a teacher, assistant principal, principal and currently supervisor of student services. He said he is looking forward to this new responsibility and the prospects that come with it.
“I am very excited to have this opportunity to transition back to a teaching-focused role in our school district,” he said. “I have loved my time in school operations as an assistant principal, principal and supervisor. I now most eagerly look forward to returning to classroom considerations, instructional programming, assessment practices and the first love that drew so many of us to the educational field - teaching our kids”
Director of Schools Chris Causey said he is pleased to announce Pruitt’s new role.
“Dr. Pruitt brings a lot to his new position,” he said. “The interview committee was impressed with his existing knowledge of high school curriculum, graduation requirements, ACT programs and current pedagogy in the classroom.
“This placement should be a smooth transition that will help Robertson County Schools continue to move forward in our goal of academic excellence.”
Pruitt will assume his new responsibilities on July 1.
