Search begins for new Hancock County superintendent


The Hancock County Board of Education continued discussions on the contract of Superintendent Tim Woodward at Monday night’s meeting. 

The Board voted four to zero, with one member recusing herself, to not continue negotiations with Woodward’s contract. 

The vote came after Woodward had the chance to voice his opinions to those in attendance. He made it clear that his future is not in Hancock County. 

“I really don’t have a desire at the end of my contract to work for this board anymore,” he said. “I’m tired of the way people I love, including myself, have been treated. I’m tired of a lot of the things that have gone on that have been absolutely embarrassing.”

Woodward also said his contract lasts until June 30. 

The Hancock County Board of Education is in the process of searching for the next superintendent, but no action was taken at this meeting. The Board said it will have more information at its next regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, March 25 at 5:00 p.m.
