MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Autauga County Superintendent Tim Tidmore has announced he will retire effective immediately.

Tidmore made the announcement during a meeting with the Autauga County Schools Board of Directors on Friday. Tidmore says he plans to stay briefly to help the interim superintendent, Dr. Daniel Boyd.

Boyd is the former deputy state superintendent of instruction for the Alabama State Board of Education and a former Lowndes County superintendent.

Tidmore became superintendent in 2021 after former superintendent Spence Agee retired.

“This district is overflowing with passionate faculty, staff, and administrators,” said Tidmore. “It’s been my distinct honor to serve alongside these dedicated professionals. As one of the lower-funded districts in our state, I’ve been amazed at their ability to create thriving classrooms and schools with little more than tenacity, ingenuity, and teamwork. I know they will continue to build on our improvements in the last few years, and I look forward to reading about all the accomplishments while spending time with my children and grandchildren.”

Previously residents voted for their school superintendent, but after Agee decided not to seek re-election, state law gave the school board power to appoint the position. Tidmore was the first superintendent to be appointed by the school board.

The school board hired Tidmore from Albertville City Schools, where he served as deputy superintendent of federal programs.
