New Roanoke Rapids Graded Schools Superintendent Dain Butler was sworn in by Judge W. Turner Stephenson III this evening at the city school board's monthly meeting.

Butler said he looks forward to the opportunity to lead the Roanoke Rapids Graded School District. His wife, Brie, and their 6-year-old twins are also excited about becoming a part of the community.

Butler has enjoyed a nearly 17-year career in public education in North Carolina — most recently serving as executive director for school administration for Alamance-Burlington Schools. He held that position for the last four years before being hired in Roanoke Rapids.

As a key member of the superintendent’s cabinet, Butler is responsible for legal, administrative, and operational issues, including board policies, student discipline appeals, grievances, student assignment, alternative education programs, and school safety and security.

Butler also served as director of school improvement and accountability from 2008 to 2012. He began his educational career in Alamance-Burlington Schools as a middle school teacher before moving up to an assistant principal and ultimately a principal position at local elementary schools.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He attended graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where he earned his master’s in school administration in 2002 and his doctorate in educational leadership in 2012.
