Sullivan County Director of Schools Evelyn Rafalowski will delay her retirement until her replacement arrives.
Rafalowski, who was planning to retire on June 30, will stay on the job for another month.
According to Board of Education Chairman Michael Hughes, Rafalowski’s contract will be extended in order to cover the position until the new director, David Cox, can take the job.
Cox currently works for Allegany County Public Schools in Maryland. He was born in Kingsport and went to ETSU.
Hughes says they are still working to finalize Cox’s contract.
