Tim Scott

Douglas County Schools Assistant Superintendent Tim Scott is one of two finalists for the Dalton City Schools superintendent job.

The Daily News-Citizen in Dalton reported that the Dalton Board of Education named Scott and Interim Dalton City Schools Superintendent Don Amonett as the two finalists for superintendent at a meeting Feb. 26.

Scott and Amonett met with school board members and the public last Wednesday.

The school board must wait 14 days before voting on a new superintendent. A decision is expected to be made at a called meeting early next week, according to the Dalton newspaper.

Scott has had a long career education. He came to Douglas County as principal of Douglas County High School in 2011, a position he held until he took over as assistant superintendent of district operations in 2015.

Before coming to Douglas County, Scott was previously an assistant principal at Lassiter High School in Cobb County. At Lassiter, his responsibilities included special education, science, senior class and discipline coordinator.

Scott worked in Houston County from 1986-2007. His positions there included teacher and coach at Rumble Middle School from 1986-1987; teacher, department chair and coach at Northside High School from 1987-1997 and principal at the school from 2001-2006. He was principal of Houston County Career & Technical Center from 2006-2007. He served as Dublin High School Principal from 2007-2009.

Scott is a graduate of Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville with a bachelor’s in health and physical education and a master’s in educational leadership. He received a specialist degree in educational leadership from Troy State University and a doctorate in educational leadership from Argosy University. He makes $140,000 in his position with the Douglas County School System.

Scott’s wife, Robyn, current the principal at Stewart Middle School, was recently named the new principal at Mason Creek Middle School.
