Jeff Moss did what most school system superintendents do, he stayed fours years and moved onto a higher paying job. Few people in this county will shed a tear for him. (Well maybe Bill Tatum will since he was responsible for bringing him here in the first place.) No, Jeff Moss will move on along with his higher salary and his NC State retirement, courtesy of Bill and crew. That means the Lee County Board of Education will pick another hired man. How many is this now, eight in the past 15 years?
Here’s an idea. Board of Education, don’t use any search service, especially at $40K. Didn’t those services bring Jeff Moss, and what’s his name, McCormick, to Lee County. And, let it not be forgotten, that those services brought Jeff Moss to Stanley, Beaufort and Lee counties in NC, and now to Beaufort to SC. They sure do a good job now don’t they? LCBOE you keep claiming that you can wear big boy and big girl pants when you pretend to stand up to the county commissioners (at least Bill gave you credit for wearing them in the paper). Stand up and hire a new schools boss without a search service which has proven especially fallible in the past. Do the job yourselves.
On that note, goodbye Dr. Moss, you have done the job you were hired to do. It will take years to figure out all you did, but then you were good at it. It is time though that you and the LCBOE do move on and get your era behind everyone.
