The Williams Unified School District Board of Trustees terminated Dr. Edgar Lampkin's contract of employment at the Boards December 17th, 2020 special meeting, effective February 16th, 2021.

The Superintendents contract provides the Board of Trustees with the option to terminate the Superintendents employment as a matter of Board discretion upon sixty days written notice.

The newly elected Board believes that its vision for the future and expectations for leadership require a change in management style and new leadership that will benefit our District and the students we serve. Dr. Lampkin has been provided with a leave of absence beginning December 18, 2020 through February 16, 2021 during which he will no longer work as the district superintendent.

The Board has engaged the services of Bill Cornelius, a highly regarded former and now retired superintendent, to serve as interim superintendent while the Board develops a recruitment plan to ensure the highest quality and experienced candidates to fill the superintendency permanently.

As required by the Board of Trustees discretionary contract termination provision, Dr. Lampkin will be paid his base salary and medical/dental/vision benefits through August 17th, 2021, unless, during that time he becomes gainfully employed or commences drawing retirement benefits.
