David Fonseca, current assistant superintendent of Watauga County Schools, will carry out additional duties as needed to support the school system in day-to-day operations until the Board announces its plan for an interim superintendent at its next meeting on April 8th.
Dr. Fonseca said “We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we work through this time of transition. We remain absolutely committed to working with teachers, parents, and the community to put students first.”
Superintendent Dr. David Kafitz is currently transitioning out of the superintendent’s position pursuant to a mutual agreement with the Watauga County Schools Board of Education.
That agreement was announced in a joint press release from Dr. Kafitz and the Board of Education on March 28th.
