Redish leaving for similar job in Spartanburg County

Cherokee County School District associate superintendent Dr. Carlotta Redish was hired for a similar position in Spartanburg School District 7 this week.

Redish was officially named associate superintendent for personnel Tuesday evening when Spartanburg School District 7 held its regular board meeting. Redish will reportedly receive a $12,000 pay raise from her $115,250 salary she earned in the Cherokee County School District this past school year.

Cherokee County Superintendent Dr. Quincie Moore confirmed she has received a resignation letter from Redish. In her letter, Redish said she planned to start her new position Aug. 13 at Spartanburg School District 7, Moore said.

“I have accepted the letter and it will be on the board agenda Monday night,” Moore said.

Redish, a Gaffney native, returned here from Los Angeles in 2006 when she was hired to become B.D. Lee Elementary School principal and moved to the Cherokee County School District office the following year.

After three years as personnel director, Redish was named associate superintendent in the fall of 2010.

Redish spent two years as associate superintendent for administrative services and instruction. She spent this past year overseeing the school district’s accountability efforts and served as district facilitator for a new 5- year strategic plan approved by school trustees in May.
