Chief Operating Officer for Albemarle Co. Schools Leaving for Henrico Co.

June 27, 2013

Josh Davis, the Chief Operating Officer for Albemarle County Public Schools, is leaving the division to accept a position as the Director of Pupil Transportation for Henrico County Public Schools.

“I am excited by this new challenge to serve the students and community of Henrico County in a large and vibrant school division,” Davis said this week. “I have loved working for Albemarle County, and will always treasure the many relationships I found with co-workers, students and families while working for the school division.”

Davis joined the Albemarle County school division in 2009 as its Director of Transportation, becoming the interim Chief Operating Officer in 2011 and was named Chief Operating Officer a year later.

“Josh has been an incredible asset to our community and our schools and will be missed. His leadership created a strong level of support across multiple departments and helped move us forward through challenging budget cycles. We have been fortunate to have had him work with us as both our Transportation Director and as our Chief Operating Officer,” said Dr. Pamela R. Moran, Superintendent of Albemarle County Public Schools.

Davis became well-known to many of the students and their families as the voice on the phone when inclement weather caused school openings to be delayed or school to be canceled. A music video parody produced by an Albemarle High School student earlier this year, “Call Me Maybe Josh Davis,” resulted in more than 38,000 hits on YouTube.

Davis will be transitioning to his new post in early July.

Dr. Moran said the division would immediately begin a search process for a new Chief Operating Officer and hoped to complete the search this summer.
