RESA I director named to lead Fayette schools

A regional education official will be the next superintendent of Fayette County’s school system.

The state Department of Education announced Keith Butcher’s appointment by the state Board of Education on Monday. Butcher will begin his new job on July 1.

Butcher currently is executive director of the Beckley-based Regional Education Service Agency I. He previously served as West Virginia Title 1 director and as executive director of the state Office of Instructional Servics.

He will replace Dwight Dials, who is retiring at the end of June.

Dials was appointed superintendent following a state takeover of the school system in 2010.
