FCPS Introduces Superintendent Finalist Terri Breeden

Chase Cavanaugh

Fayette County Public Schools held a press conference Friday for a finalist in its search for Superintendent.  The candidate, Terri Breeden, has previously served as assistant superintendent at Loudon and Fairfax County Schools in Northern Virginia, as well as Executive Director of Grades 5-12 in Nashville.  While she admitted to not having previous experience as a full superintendent, Breeden points to her responsibilities in larger districts, such as Fairfax, with 181,000 students. 

“Very few superintendents have a budget of $564 million that they have to know backwards and forward, so I think because I’ve been in big school systems, even though I haven’t been the superintendent, I’ve had big important responsibilities,” she said.  

Like her fellow finalist, Emmanuel Caulk, she spent two days meeting with students, teachers, and members of the community through receptions and a public forum. The overall response has been positive, with Fayette County Board of Education member Daryl Love, praising the search process.  

"I think the overall process of just creating the profile, even in moving towards this particular process of interviews, have really been more of a community collective process, and I’m really pleased with that," he said. 

The full press conference can be heard below.
