KENT, Wash. (AP) - The Kent School District has a new superintendent.

The Seattle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1bxFReH ) that the Kent School Board voted late Wednesday to hire Calvin Watts as its next superintendent. The district is the fourth-largest in the state.

Watts was an assistant superintendent in Gwinnett County Public Schools in Suwanee, Ga. He also worked in Seattle Public Schools as a middle-school teacher.

Watts replaces Edward Lee Vargas, who left Kent in October to become an executive vice president for AVID, a national nonprofit that helps average high-school students make it to college.
