Hairston Confirms He's Done as Superintendent
Patch first reported the superintendent's departure earlier this week.
Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Joe Hairston acknowledged Thursday that he is calling it quits after nearly 12 years, as first reported by Patch.
Multiple sources confirmed to Patch on Tuesday that Hairston’s decision may have been hastened by the fact that the board recently voted to not offer an additional four-year extension.
Hairston wouldn't comment Tuesday to Patch, but he told The Baltimore Sun in an email Thursday that "I have always said that I would not seek another term. ... Twelve years is a tremendous run for any superintendent."
