More major problems are brewing for the already beleaguered Jefferson County school system.
On April 21, 2017, an online service connected to the Birmingham News newspaper reported that Lisa Herring, the current Chief Academic Officer (CAO) at the Jefferson County Public School District (JCPS), is a finalist to become Birmingham, Alabama’s new school superintendent.
So, it appears Herring, who has been on the job less than a year in Louisville, isn’t exactly in love with her current position in JCPS.
This is no surprise. In fact, the CAO position at JCPS had a highly troubled history even before Herring arrived, and recent events point to a lot more heat headed in the CAO’s way.
