Robertson County Schools Director Causey resigns, plans move to neighboring school district

By Katie Nixon, Nashville Tennessean,


Over 150 administrative, certified and classified positions are currently available in Robertson County Schools.

Soon the role of Director of Schools will be added to that list.

Robertson County Schools Director Dr. Chris Causey recently resigned from the district, RCS Communications Coordinator Jim Bellis confirmed.

District officials shared their support concerning the director's departure.

"While sad to see him go, the board of Robertson County Schools recognizes Dr. Causey’s desire to move on to the next chapter of his life," RCS Board of Education Chair Jeff White said.

"The Director of Schools job is 24/7 and we wish him well in his pursuit of creating more time to spend with his family. He will be missed."

Causey has worked with the school district nearly 30 years.

He was the only internal candidate under consideration for the position, beating out more than two dozen applicants for the job in 2017.

Moving on to Sumner County Schools

Causey plans to continue his career in Sumner Schools, Bellis said.

News of Causey's departure follows that of Sumner County Schools Director Dr. Del Phillips III's retirement earlier this year.

Phillips served as the director of Sumner County Schools for the past 12 years and is one of the longest serving directors in the district’s history.

The district's chief academic officer, Scott Langford, will replace Phillips July 1.
