New superintendent of innovation has strong North Carolina ties

State Superintendent Mark Johnson has appointed veteran North Carolina educator David Stegall superintendent of innovation at the Department of Public Instruction.

Stegall will start work in June.

He replaces Eric Hall, who resigned this month to accept a chancellor position at the Florida Department of Education.

Stegall is currently superintendent of US Curriculum Schools for GEMS Education in Dubai, UAE.

He is the former superintendent of Newton-Conover City Schools, where 100 percent of schools met or exceeded growth in his final two years on the job.

Stegall was named regional Superintendent of the Year in 2017, and developed a national award-winning STEM school, a national award-winning Leader in Me school, a state-recognized personalized learning school and a successful dual-language school, among other accomplishments.

“Dr. Stegall’s wealth of experience and passion for innovative approaches make him a great fit for our team at DPI,” Johnson said. “His addition to the agency means we won’t skip a beat in our urgent drive to make North Carolina schools the best place to learn and the best place to teach.”

Stegall earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He holds a master’s degree in education administration from Gardner-Webb University and a doctorate in education leadership from Appalachian State University.
