The Coffee County Board of Education passed a number of personnel actions at the July 23 board meeting.

The school boards also passed an emergency resolution to suspend board policy, which allows Superintendent Kevin Killingsworth to make COVID-19 related decisions without having to get board approval beforehand. Board President Brian McLeod said that it’s a resolution that schools across the state are taking up so that superintendents can make tough, quick decisions related to COVID-19.

In other business, the board approved a bid for the purchase of milk and produce for Coffee County Schools and tabled discussion of bids for Zion Chapel’s gymnasium project for a future meeting.

Discussion over superintendent compensation was also removed from the agenda. Personnel actions are listed below.


Kayla Fitzpatrick, teacher at New Brockton Elementary School.


Travis Adams, band director at Kinston School;

Sonya Jordan, teacher at New Brockton Elementary School;

Dakota Tillis, teacher at New Brockton High School;
