The Dalton Board of Education named Tim Scott its new superintendent Wednesday night.
Scott comes to Dalton from Douglas County, Ga., where he served as an assistant superintendent of district operations since May 2015. In that role, he oversaw construction, renovation and maintenance of buildings, as well as technology, sports, nutrition and school safety.
Before that, according to his resume, Scott taught science and physical education in Houston County, Ga., for 11 years. He then worked as an assistant or head principal for 18 years.
"Dr. Scott's vast experience, leadership ability and record of improving student achievement will add value to our district and advance our vision of preparing students to become contributing citizens of the world," the board of education said in a statement.
