Pollio said he's proud of his new title, but mostly excited to begin impacting how students learn.

"It's surreal in a way," Pollio said. "Being around these people for my entire career, then coming and having this many people here celebrate you. It's an honor."

Pollio was hired as the superintendent of the district about a month ago. He was named interim superintendent of JCPS in May 2017.
