Couch is new Kent County school superintendent
The Kent County school system has a new superintendent. On Tuesday night, the Kent County Board of Education announced Karen A. Couch as the new county school superintendent succeeding Barbara Wheeler. Couch is ending 12 years as the superintendent of the Edgewood-Moriarty School District in New Mexico where she was the state’s superintendent of the year in 2010. That district with 3,200 students is ranked fourth among large school districts in the state. She, and two finalists, spent a day in Kent County last week meeting with various groups. Her salary is $148,000 a year and she will start on July 1 on a four year renewable term.
