Edmonds, who began as ECPPS superintendent last month, also came to the district from the Bertie County Schools.

For his part, Liverman said he’s “excited” about coming to ECPPS and looks forward to working with students and staff at Pasquotank Elementary.

“I am passionate about connecting with parents and the community to create a learning environment that is supportive and positive for everyone,” he said in the press release. “I believe high expectations, along with support and accountability, will be the driving force to move student academic performance at Pasquotank Elementary. I am pleased to be a part of the ECPPS community.”

According to ECPPS, Liverman holds a bachelor’s degree in special education from Elizabeth City State University and master’s degrees in both special education and school administration from East Carolina University.
