The Board of Education of Harford County Public Schools has appointed Dr. Sean Bulson as the new superintendent.

“We spent many hours discussing the feedback we received from the students, staff, and community and feel that Dr. Bulson is the right choice for Harford County Public Schools,” said Board President Joseph L. Voskuhl.  

Dr. Bulson served a total of 16 years in Montgomery County Public Schools before relocating to North Carolina. In 2011, Dr. Bulson became superintendent of Wilson County Schools in North Carolina, supervising 12,000 students and 25 schools. 

And now, after completing the Superintendent search process, school officials have granted him the job.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to build on the great work already occurring in Harford County on behalf of students,” said Dr. Bulson.  “From my own research and in the questions asked of me during the interview process, I see a community motivated to do more to focus on career preparation, equity, safety, and partnerships.  I look forward to advancing that work.”   

Bulson's appointment starts July 1 after the retirement of current Superintendent Barbara P. Caravan. He will serve a 4-year term as Superintendent.
