    At the start of his last full week on the job, our schools surprised Superintendent Dr. Walter Davie with a parade, in honor of his years of service to our students. Dr. Davie will retire on June 30, after nearly 30 years of service to the Tuscaloosa County School System. Dr. Davie began his career in education as a teacher at Crestmont Elementary School in 1990. Throughout the years, Dr. Davie has served as an assistant principal, principal at both the elementary and secondary levels, and Deputy Superintendent. In 2015, he became Superintendent of the Tuscaloosa County School System. 

    “I never expected I would be Superintendent, so to have this opportunity and to work alongside the people that I have, has been a great honor,” Dr. Davie said.

    In January of this year, Dr. Davie announced that he would retire on May 31. However, Dr. Davie made the decision to delay his retirement, when the COVID-19 pandemic caused the closure of our school buildings in March. 

    TCSS will welcome Dr. Keri Johnson as Superintendent of the Tuscaloosa County School System on July 1.
