The Wilson County Board of Education dipped into the 16th largest school system in the country for its selection of the new superintendent of Wilson County Schools. The Board announced during a special board meeting on April 6 that Sean W. Bulson will take the helm as the new superintendent on July 1. Mr. Bulson is currently a community superintendent for Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland, which is the largest school system in that state. He oversees the Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Walter Johnson, Wheaton and Walt Whitman clusters and is responsible for supervising 36 elementary, middle and high schools serving approximately 24,000 students. Wilson County Schools has 25 schools and serves 12,500 students.
Mr. Bulson will follow Dr. Larry E. Price, who will retire after 13 years of service as superintendent on June 30.
“I am very excited about coming to Wilson, and I look forward to getting out into the community and meeting more people,” Mr. Bulson said. “What people will learn about me is that I like to talk and I like to listen. My style of leadership is based on collaboration. There is so much to tap into here and some great resources in this community. Successful education is about great relationships – relationships between students and teachers, between parents and schools, between schools and businesses, between schools and government – it really has to go in every direction.”
...In his current role as a community superintendent, he also co-leads the Montgomery County Public Schools Honors/Advanced Placement /International Baccalaureate M-Stat team which successfully delivered the first countywide webinar on the topic of improving student performance on AP and IB exams.continues here
