The Granville County Board of Education approved numerous staff changes, from Central Services to individual schools across the district at its meeting Monday, June 7.
Dr. Stan Winborne was named associate superintendent of curriculum & instruction and student services. He will continue to be the public information officer, according to a press release announcing the changes.
Winborne replaces Dr. Michael Myrick, who leaves GCPS to become the superintendent of Weldon City Schools in Halifax County.
Winborne has worked with GCPS for almost 25 years, beginning his career as an English as a Second Language and Spanish teacher. He has held numerous administrative positions in Central Services.
“The new staffing assignments were designed to place highly qualified staff in key positions in order to move the district forward in the coming academic year,” the press release stated. Superintendent Dr. Alisa McLean said the changes reflect a need to be more streamlined in district operations. “Just as our board is working toward school reorganization and efforts to become more efficient, so too will our leadership team.,” McLean said. “Now is the time to downsize our staffing at Central Services and streamline the way we support our schools. We will continue to make improvements to our organization by reducing and reorganizing the number of positions in central services that are paid for out of local or state funds, better positioning the district financially and strategically,” McLean said.
Other staff changes include:

“It is a new day in GCPS, and as such we need to be positioned to not just respond to the needs of our students, but anticipate solutions and possibilities for the future,” McLean said. “These individuals will assist with this work and build upon the strengths we already celebrate.”
