Dr. Kelley Castlin-Gacutan named new Birmingham, Alabama Schools Superintendent
According to a tweet from the Birmingham school district, the announcement was made last night.
Dr. Gacutan joined the Bibb County School District in 2012 as head of school operations. She was the interim-superintendent of schools from January until the beginning of April when Dr. Curtis Jones took over as permanent superintendent.
“I am excited and honored to have an opportunity to come to Birmingham, a city where I was born and raised in nearby Hueytown,” said Dr. Gacutan.
She looks forward to helping her new district move forward and continue the great work it has already accomplished, like improving graduation rates.
“On the other hand, the move is bittersweet because the thought of not being a part of the work in Bibb County and not seeing the people that I care so much about on a daily basis is difficult. I feel I have made lifelong friends in Bibb and as a leader in Birmingham, I plan to foster a work environment that exemplifies the same type of teamwork and dedication,” explained Dr. Gacutan.
