   An assistant superintendent in the Alamance-Burlington Schools is leaving to take a job with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.

   Alisa McLean, the system’s assistant superintendent for student services, will work through Nov. 10. At the N.C. Division of Public Instruction, she will work with high school principals on improving schools. She has been a principal in Orange County and has worked with the state’s Principals’ Executive Program.

   McLean has been with the Alamance-Burlington system since 2009. She was hired by the school board on the recommendation of then-Superintendent Randy Bridges as assistant superintendent of curriculum.

   Her area of responsibility changed after a central office reorganization by Superintendent Lillie Cox, who started July 1.

   The assistant superintendent for student services is responsible for overseeing areas that include child nutrition, transportation and student support services such as counseling, dropout prevention efforts and the school nurses program. The student services division also includes the What’s After High School? program, which is meant to prepare students for college, a career or military enrollment.

   The system is advertising for applicants for the job. The salary is listed as “negotiable” on the school system’s website.

   The system is also looking for a new executive director of human resources to replace Arasi Adkins. The salary range for the job is $46,488 to $74,472.

   Adkins’ last day with the local system will be Nov. 10. She is taking a job as executive director of human resources for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
