TCSS Welcomes Dr. Keri Johnson as Superintendent

  • July 1, 2020

    Effective July 1, 2020, the Tuscaloosa County School System welcomes Dr. Keri Johnson as Superintendent.

    “I am thrilled to be joining the TCSS team,” Dr. Johnson said.

    “I have always heard good things about TCSS, so when the job of Superintendent became available, I did some research to see if I might be a good fit.  I found that the people of TCSS, no matter which community they are in, are a family of hard workers who care about students.”

    Dr. Johnson comes to TCSS from Alabaster City Schools, where she served as Coordinator of Secondary Education and Exceptional Education. Dr. Johnson previously held positions within Shelby County Schools. She has served as an adjunct instructor for Samford University and the University of Montevallo. 

    Dr. Johnson holds a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership from Samford University. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education from Jacksonville State University, a Master of Arts in Special Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a Certification in Educational Administration from the University of Montevallo, and an Education Specialist in Educational Administration from the University of Montevallo.

    In its May 11 regular meeting, the Tuscaloosa County Board of Education voted to offer the position of Superintendent to Dr. Johnson.

    Dr. Johnson says one of the things she appreciates about TCSS is that the district is made up of the unique communities with Tuscaloosa County. She says she looks forward to getting to know the students, families, faculty, and staff members of the Tuscaloosa County School System.

    “I am so excited for us to work together as a team to enhance the good things already in place and to always get better as we move forward.”

    Dr. Johnson takes over the role of Superintendent from Dr. Walter Davie. Dr. Davie retired June 30, after serving in the position since 2015.
