Eades wants to prepare kids for the 21st century PDF Print
Thursday, 15 November 2007 22:23

While Avery’s new superintendent doesn’t take over until July, he’s plans to be active in the Avery County School System as soon as possible.


He plans on visiting every chance he gets- especially when it’s budget time. Eades wants to be involved in the budget process.


Currituck County assistant superintendent Keith Eades will be taking over when Grace Calhoun retires next summer. It’s a move he’s looking forward to.


“I’ve always had interest in working in a smaller school district, and that’s one of the things that attracted me to Avery County.”


Eades has been in education for 22 years.


He wants to look at “21st century skills” and make sure kids are prepared.


He looks forward to evaluating Avery Schools over the next few months and developing a plan of action. 17 applicants applied for the position. Eades' appointment was announced at this week’s Board of Education meeting.
