Lebanon Special School District Board of Education Chairman Steve Jones indicated he plans to recommend Scott Benson as the Interim Director of Schools for the district until a full time replacement can be found for current director, Dr. Sharon Roberts.

Im going to recommend an interim until the end of the (school year) at that time, Jones said, referring to the board meeting next Monday (Dec. 12) at 5 p.m.

He then said he plans to recommend Benson for the position until they can find a replacement for Roberts later next year.

If the board approves Jones recommendation to make Benson interim director, he said the body as a whole will then decide whether to name him the full time director, or find someone else.

Benson is currently the Assistant Director of Schools and has served in that capacity since Sept. 1 when former assistant director Randall Hutto vacated the position to take office as Wilson County Mayor.

Roberts announced her resignation last month in order to take a position with the Tennessee State Collaborative on Reforming Education, a non profit organization encouraging sound public education policy and working to promote innovative education reform across the state. Roberts resignation is effective Jan. 1, 2012.
