The Columbus County Board of Education has not yet begun looking for a replacement for retiring superintendent Alan Faulk, said Barbara Yates-Lockamy, board chair.

“We have nothing planned yet,” Yates-Lockamy said Thursday. “We’ll meet again in August and discuss what we plan to do, such as how to search, and whether to assign an interim.” In July the board takes a break from their usual monthly meeting.

Faulk announced his resignation at the board’s June meeting after eight years in the post. He will continue to serve until Oct. 1.

Yates-Lockamy said that, before beginning a search, the board would revisit the superintendent’s job description and “modify or adjust” it. “That’s how we’ll start in August,” she said.
