Role Changes in JCPS,
Area Assistant Superintendents
Under the direction of Johnston County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jim Causby, three staff members in leadership positions have been assigned new roles to support the growing needs of the district. 
These positions are not new positions, nor do they carry any additional funding or raises to the staff assigned to these roles, according to Causby.
Each Area Assistant Superintendent is assigned a region of the district and will provide support and customer service to schools in their specific region. The roles of Area Assistant Superintendent are assigned to Dr. David Pearce, Patty Whittington, and Dr. Ben Williams.
