Albany Schools Superintendent Adams leaving in January

Albany Schools Superintendent Kaweeda Adams will leave in January.

The district made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon.

Adams came to the district six years ago from Nevada.

The district says Adams will be continuing in the educational field, but did not elaborate. NewsChannel 13 is working to find out about her new job.

“Superintendent Adams has been a transformational leader for our school district – the right person at the right time to lead us on our journey toward equity,” Board of Education President Vickie Smith said in a statement. “She is one of the hardest-working, focused professionals I have had the privilege to work with.”

An interim superintendent will be appointed as the board starts to search for a permanent one.
