One of the five members of school superintendent Wanda Creel’s “executive cabinet” has resigned — and his wife, the principal of Bethlehem Elementary School, has decided to retire.
Jake Grant, assistant superintendent for facilities, has accepted an offer to become the chief operations officer of the Oconee County school system. His last day in Barrow County is May 31.
Marisa Grant, who has worked at three Barrow County elementary schools over nine years, is retiring effective June 30.
The couple submitted their letters of resignation last week. The Barrow County Board of Education accepted Jake Grant’s resignation following a closed session April 30. The Oconee County Board of Education was scheduled to make his appointment May 6.
Jake Grant has worked for Barrow County’s school system since May 2001.
