WCS Names New Administrators


Two veteran administrators have been selected for new roles beginning with the 2019-20 school year. Interim Superintendent Jason Golden made the announcements today.

Fairview Elementary Assistant Principal Dr. Tracy Bullard has been promoted to Fairview Elementary Principal. She replaces Brent Oakley who was promoted to Executive Director of Elementary Schools.

“Tracy is a seasoned educator with a wide variety of knowledge and experience,” said Golden. “As a member of the Fairview school community, I know that she is invested and has the same high expectations for students and staff that I do. I am confident she will lead Fairview Elementary to the next level.”

Bullard joined Williamson County Schools in 2001 as an English as a Second Language specialist. She also served as the ESL curriculum specialist until becoming the assistant principal at Fairview Elementary in 2009. Prior to joining WCS, she taught in Dickson County for six years.

“I have been a part of this amazing community for the past nine years and am honored to serve in this new role,” said Ballard. “While at Fairview Elementary School, I have learned first-hand the importance of providing opportunities to promote student success. Working alongside dedicated students, staff and families, we have created a lot of momentum centered around student achievement and growth, and I am eager to continue that upward trend.”

Hillsboro School Principal Dr. Alicia Justice has been selected to open the new middle school on Henpeck Lane. That school is scheduled to open in August of 2020.

“Alicia has served the Hillsboro community well over the past nine years as an assistant principal and principal,” said Golden. “She is a relational leader, and her high-quality instructional leadership experience will serve us well in opening the new school.”

Justice joined WCS 17 years ago. She taught anatomy and physiology at Centennial and Independence high schools before becoming a district mentor for math and science teachers. She was named assistant principal at Hillsboro in 2010.

“It has been my absolute honor and joy to serve the Hillsboro School community for the past nine years. Hillsboro School is a success because of the hard working and talented students, the dedicated and professional faculty and staff, and the supportive and encouraging parents. Hillsboro School will always be a unique and special place for students and families.” said Justice. “I am excited and eager to embark on a new challenge, serving the Oak View area, as the principal of our newest WCS middle school. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to building strong relationships as we partner together for the success of our students and school.”

Justice earned a Bachelor’s in Health and Human Performance and Secondary Biology from the University of Tennessee at Martin; a Master’s in Administration and Supervision and an Education Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction from Middle Tennessee State University; and Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Tennessee State University.

Bullard earned a Bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of the Philippines. She holds a Masters in both Special Education and English as a Second Language; a Specialist in Administration and Supervision; and a Doctorate in Administration and Supervision from Tennessee State University.

Both will begin their new responsibilities on July 1, 2019.
