New superintendent named for Gloucester schools
Clemons has served as superintendent of Northampton Public Schools for the past three years. He will take the Gloucester post on July 1 when current superintendent Ben Kiser retires after an 11-year tenure.
Clemons signed a three-year contract with the Gloucester School Board at an annual salary of $142,000. The board will also match up to $10,000 of Clemons’s contribution to an annuity or deferred compensation plan annually. Additionally, he will be provided with a car.
The contract with Clemons requires him to establish legal residency in Gloucester within six months of taking office, and states that Clemons will be reimbursed up to $5,000 for his moving expenses.
Clemons holds a doctor of philosophy degree in educational leadership and policy studies from Virginia Tech, a certificate of advanced study in educational administration from Old Dominion University, and master of music in music education and bachelor of science instrumental music degrees from Norfolk State University.
“I look forward to serving Gloucester County Public Schools with a Students First Philosophy and providing the appropriate support and resources to all faculty and staff which enable them to be successful,” Clemons said in a release.
