Dr. Billy Haun, the Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning for Albemarle County Public Schools, was appointed Friday to be the Chief Academic Officer for the state of Virginia. The appointment was announced by Virginia’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Steven R. Staples. Dr. Haun will assume his new responsibilities on September 1.
In a prepared statement, Staples said, “I am delighted that Billy is bringing his knowledge, leadership and innovative ideas to the department.”
As Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Haun will manage the state Department of Education’s Division of Instruction for prekindergarten to grade 12; work with the state Board of Education and state and federal officials in shaping programs that meet college- and career-ready expectations; and work with the state Superintendent of Instruction and the Deputy Superintendent to enhance student achievement and learning and to address preK-12 educational issues throughout the Commonwealth.
Dr. Haun joined Albemarle County Public Schools in 1994 as a math teacher and the varsity football coach at Western Albemarle High School. He was named an assistant principal at Western three years later, principal of Walton Middle School in 2000, and Monticello High School principal in 2003.
