The Shelby County Board of Education appointed interim superintendent Dorsey Hopson as the new superintendent of SCS during a Special Called Meeting Tuesday evening.

Now the board will start contract negotiations with Hopson.

Hopson became interim superintendent of Memphis City Schools in January 2013, and accepted the same role with SCS in March when John Aitken resigned as superintendent.
