Colleton school board names acting superintendent

Posted: Updated:

COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) – The Colleton County School District has a new temporary superintendent.

According to board member William Bowman Jr., Dr. Franklin Foster will serve as acting superintendent until the board can find a long-term interim superintendent. Foster currently serves as the human resources director for the district.

Bowman said the board hopes to have a permanent replacement for outgoing superintendent Leila Williams. However, three of the board members are up for re-election which means there is a delay in finding a new superintendent.

Bowman said the board decided they did not want to hire a replacement for Williams with a number of board members facing re-election.

Williams was fired earlier this week after the board entered executive session and decided to end her contract even though she had recently signed on for another year.

District officials said no one thing contributed to Williams being fired.
