WCS find their groove during district’s first days of school

The sun was rising above the Thompson’s Station hills as Jason Golden made his first-day-of-school debut as Williamson County Schools superintendent.

He took over the position in May and finished out the 2018-19 year, having replaced Mike Looney as the latter moved on to lead Fulton County Schools in Atlanta. But for his first back-to-school responsibility, Golden reported at Independence High School around 6 a.m. Friday to meet with media and to watch as teenagers made their return from summer.

“I do have a little bit of that nerve and excitement that feels new because the responsibility levels have changed,” Golden said. “I spent some time with our department heads and senior staff just double- and triple-checking on whether anybody needed additional help. We spent more time talking about those things and the details.”
