CUMBERLAND – A superintendent announcement will come during a special Cumberland County Public Schools division-wide called meeting on Friday, August 27.

During this meeting, the School Board will be making the selection of the new leader for the school system.

According to information received by The Herald, the special meeting will begin at 3:45 p.m. in the Middle/High School cafetorium.

The Board's formal announcement will be made at a called meeting that is set to begin at 5 p.m.
