It looks like the Wake County school system will soon be losing one of its top administrators.
The Baltimore Sun is reporting today that Kevin Hobbs, Wake's central area superintendent, is expected to be named deputy superintendent for Baltimore County schools. Hobbs was hired by Wake in December.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the school board there deadlocked 6-6 on Tuesday on hiring Hobbs because of a certification issue. But the newspaper quotes school board members who say they'll hire Hobbs after he completes a certification course July 1.
Hobbs taught at Garner High School but spent much of his career in Maryland in the Montgomery County school system. He'll get a bump in pay from his $120,000 Wake salary to $185,000 in Baltimore.
