Dear KCKPS Community,
It is with sincere regret we announce the resignation of Superintendent Dr. Charles Foust. Dr. Foust has accepted a position as the Superintendent of the New Hanover County Schools in Wilmington, North Carolina. We are grateful and appreciative of Dr. Foust’s leadership during his time here with us. His commitment and dedication to our students and their families will be missed.
Since becoming Superintendent in 2018, Dr. Foust has been a valuable and well-respected leader for the District. His push for educational excellence through all levels of the District were evidenced by student gains and National recognition.
The Board of Education will continue to work with our staff as we plan the re-opening of our schools. We will maintain our focus on providing a quality education for students. Change is never easy but as we move forward, we appreciate the dedication and hard work of the men and women of our staff.
I am confident that we will continue to provide a safe environment and the highest quality education as we work to identify an interim Superintendent and go through the process of hiring our next Superintendent. The Board of Education will continue to work together, now more than ever, to guide our district and to inspire excellence, every grownup, every child, every day.
