A new superintendent has been appointed for the Easton-Redding-Region 9 school district. Jason McKinnon has been appointed to the position. The tri-Bboard of Ed met in a special meeting on Tuesday. He comes to the region from Oxford, where he has served as superintendent since 2019. McKinnon’s official start date is still being negotiated. He takes over from Tom McMorran, who has been serving as interim superintendent since the abrupt departure of Rydell Harrison. Harrison resigned days after the school board approved a contract extension, after just 10 months leading Easton-Redding-Region 9. Six interviews of 20 applicants were held before three finalists, including McKinnon, were named.
