Dr. Anthony S. Brads has been reappointed as Culpeper County superintendent of schools, the School Board announced Tuesday.

The board voted Monday to extend Brads’ employment as superintendent to a four-year contract beginning July 1 and ending June 30, 2023.

During their regularly scheduled meeting, School Board members voted to terminate his current contract, which was to end June 30, 2021.

Pursuant to the board’s budget, Brads’ annual salary will be $183,224, it said in a statement. In addition, the School Board will continue contributing to Brads’ tax-deferred annuity and providing a vehicle allowance. His other benefits will stay the same as before.

“The board continues to be very pleased with Dr. Brads’ leadership and wanted to ensure the continuation of the relationship,” said School Board Chair Pat Baker, the panel’s East Fairfax District representative.

Brads has built a healthy relationship with county officials toward creating the Career and Technical Education school proposed next to Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center off State Route 3 and McDevitt Drive, School Board members said.

“Dr. Brads uses his experience and leadership ability ... to benefit teachers, staff and students,” Baker said. “Dr. Brads continues to keep our students in the forefront of all decisions from school safety, technology and higher-education possibilities to 21st-century workforce skills.”

The board chair praised him as being one of the commonwealth’s most experienced school district chiefs.

“This board feels very fortunate to be able to say he is our superintendent of schools,” Baker said.

“I am certainly appreciative and grateful for the board’s continued confidence and support,” Brads said Tuesday evening in response to a Star-Exponent query. “It means a great deal to me and my family. I truly believe CCPS is heading in a positive direction for our students, teachers and staff.”
