Mason named as permanent assistant director of schools
Stephanie Mason was appointed Assistant Director of Robertson County Schools, and began her responsibilities officially on Wednesday, July 1. Mason had been serving as the interim in this position since June 1, when she was named by Director Mike Davis to replace Linda Cash, who resigned to become the director of Bradley County Schools in Cleveland, TN.
Prior to her appointment, Mason served as Supervisor of Federal Programs, a position she held since 2004.
During her tenure at RCS, Mason has taught special education, served as a school administrator, and worked at the district’s Central Office. She also served as interim co-assistant director with Supervisor of Student Services Donna Dorris for the 2012-2013 school year.
Mason said she’s looking forward to serving RCS in this new capacity, and that the strong working relationships that she’s developed with colleagues over the years will be an invaluable resource.
“We have a very strong team in the district office, and it’s a privilege to work with them,” she said. Mason noted that strength is not only at the central office but throughout the district as she highlighted the level of commitment and dedication she sees from all employees of RCS – school administrators, teachers, and support staff.
Director Mike Davis said he’s confident in his choice of Mason as his new assistant.
“She brings a lot of expertise to her new position with her combined experiences as a classroom teacher, a building level administrator, and most recently as the district-wide supervisor of federal programs,” said Davis.
“She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the school system and will be an even greater asset to our district as she assumes her new responsibilities as assistant director of schools.
“I am honored to have her join with me as we continue to work to improve the teaching and learning opportunities for both staff and students throughout the Robertson County School System.”
Mason is already drawing on her teamwork and leadership skills as she settles into her new job.
One major task for her is ensuring a smooth opening of the new school year, in part, by coordinating and collaborating with all district departments to fully implement the Department of Justice agreement. These are new responsibilities for both the district and for Mason and she said efforts to accomplish them are already in progress.
Developing a strategic five-year plan is another goal that Mason says is beginning to take shape even before the school year starts, as she and a leadership team map out priorities and timelines for district development. This effort will include gathering input from multiple stakeholder groups and analyzing system and school level data in order to develop a meaningful and comprehensive plan.
As Mason now assists Director Davis in guiding district responsibilities, RCS is fortunate to be able to draw on the unique combination of experience and expertise that she brings to her new position.
