Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools will have a new transportation director at the start of 2017.

Toni Floyd, currently transportation director for Craven County Schools, will report to her new job with the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank district on Jan. 3. Floyd will succeed Frank Heath, who is retiring from the district this year.

Floyd said in a brief statement she’s happy to be joining the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools.

According to her page on LinkedIn, Floyd has been the school transportation director in Craven County the past four years. She also served as transportation director for Watauga County School for 21 years. Prior to that, she worked more than 10 years in customer service with Food Lion supermarkets and nearly a year and a half as an administrative officer for the Onslow County Health Department.

Floyd is a product of the Watauga County Schools, graduating from Watauga High School in the 1980s. She also holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from Gardner-Webb University.

Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools Superintendent Larry Cartner said in statement that Floyd's business background, along with her experience in public schools transportation, will be a tremendous asset to the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank district.

A spokeswoman for the district said administrators are still negotiating with Floyd about how much she’ll be paid as the new transportation chief. Heath is now paid $78,691 a year.
