Fulton schools offers superintendent job to Oregon educator

Fulton County school board officials on Thursday formally offered the position of superintendent to prominent Oregon educator Jeff Rose.

Rose accepted Fulton’s offer of a three-year contract with a $295,000 annual salary. He will officially join Fulton schools on June 1.

Rose was announced as the district’s sole superintendent finalist March 17, and by law, the district waited two weeks to offer the position so teachers, principals, parents and the community could provide feedback.

Rose replaces former superintendent Robert Avossa, who left last June to become superintendent in Florida’s Palm Beach County.

Rose has been superintendent of the Beaverton school district since 2011.
