MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Autauga County’s new superintendent is officially on the job. Timothy Tidmore has taken over for Spence Agee, who retired on Dec. 31.
As Autauga County’s new superintendent, Tidmore said his first goal is to visit every school and to meet with teachers, staff, students and parents.
“I want to get to each school and meet with the stakeholders of the schools,” Tidmore explained. Get their input and say what they think is going well, what they think could go a little better, and what they would like to see in the future.”
The new school leader said he plans to put students first.
“I would hope that people see that I am approachable and that I listen to all sides. But you know, when a decision is made, you know that’s it’s based on facts and data driven, and what’s best for each child,” Tidmore added.
Autauga County residents previously voted for their school superintendent, but that position is now appointed by the school board with Tidmore being the first.
The school board hired him away from Albertville City Schools, where he served as deputy superintendent of federal programs.
