The Floyd County Schools District announced staffing changes this week.
Superintendent Danny Adkins announced that Angela Duncan was appointed as the executive officer of operations and Brent Rose was appointed to her previous role, director as districtwide services for Floyd County Schools.
Duncan’s new position was recently created by the Floyd County Board of Education.
“Angela Duncan has been and will continue to lead our human resources department. As I attend meetings and visit schools, we wanted to have someone who can assist in our day-to-day operations and concerns, as we want to be as responsive to our student, staff and parent needs,” Adkins said. “Brent will be a Director of District Wide Services with a focus on instruction and multi-tiered systems of support. Brent has experience in special education, elementary and secondary education and his background makes him a natural fit for this role. He will be assisting schools to make sure that our students receive needed support and interventions.”
Duncan began her career in education as a teacher at Mt. Sterling Elementary and came to Floyd County as a curriculum resource teacher at Prestonsburg Elementary in 2004. She became a director of districtwide Services in 2008. During her 19 years in education, a few of the areas Duncan has worked with include general and special education, mentoring new teachers, coordinating district level teams and cadres and human resources. She and her husband Steve live in Prestonsburg with their daughter Taylor.
Rose started teaching in 1995 at McDowell Elementary teaching special education classes, was an assistant principal for four years at Betsy Layne High School and served as the principal for one year. In 2008, Rose became principal at Prestonsburg Elementary. During his 24 years in education, he has coached several teams and served as president of the Floyd County Principal’s Association. Rose and his wife Amy live in Prestonsburg with their four children, Anna, Ryan, Emma and Kyle.
“We are reorganizing our central office and having Angela take on this new role and adding Brent to our district instructional department will help us ensure we are innovative and providing opportunities for all kids to be successful citizens. We are excited about the upcoming year, ” Adkins said.
