Maurice Chappell was recently named Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning for Scott County Schools. Chappell comes to Scott County from Jessamine County where he served as Director of Implementation and Innovation as well as Director of Secondary Schools. He was previously a Highly Skilled Educator with the Kentucky Department of Education and taught at Social Studies and Math at Georgetown Middle School for seven years.
“I’ve always approached district leadership as service to the schools. My first major task will be to learn as much as I can about the people and programs across the district,” Chappell commented. Chappell also looks forward to reconnecting with former colleagues and friends in Scott County. Those who worked alongside Chappell at Georgetown Middle School are happy to have him back.
“Maurice Chappell is an all-around positive influence, wherever he goes and whatever he does. We are thrilled to have him rejoin our Scott County family,” stated Georgetown Middle School Teacher Joan Kille.
As Director of Implementation and Innovation for Jessamine County Schools, Chappell focused on effective teaching and learning in a growing school district. He managed Comprehensive School and District Improvement Plans, supervised the district world language program, and administered a common core implementation grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. During his tenure, the district opened and renovated multiple schools. This experience will prove effective for the Assistant Superintendent of Student Learning for Scott County Schools as we open Great Crossing High School in August 2017.
“Maurice Chappell is very knowledgeable about educational best practices and is an advocate for children in our care. He will always do what is best for students and will empower teachers to reach their greatest potential,” said Paul Krueger, Director of Elementary Education for Scott County Schools.
Chappell earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Arts in Education as well as a Rank I in Curriculum and Instruction and certification in Instructional Leadership from the University of Kentucky. His wife Becky retired from Scott County Schools as Library Media Specialist at Scott County Ninth Grade School.
