School board closing in on Superintendent decision
Decatur – The Decatur Public Schools Superintendent is up for a job in another district in South Carolina, and that School Board is closing in on making their choice.
The Board has not made a final selection just yet, but District 61 Superintendent, Gloria Davis is among two finalists for the job. The Beufuort County School Board met in a closed executive session, to discuss selecting a Superintendent.
Last night, Davis was in attendance for a community forum, for parents to ask questions. A newspaper in that area quoted Decatur School Board President Dan Winter, praising Davis as a visionary.
The School Board in Beaufort County hopes to select a Superintendent by the first week of March, though whoever gets the job likely would not start until July.
In other District 61 news, The Decatur School Board will hold a meeting tonight to discuss making roughly 8 million dollars in cuts. The meeting will be at 5:30 on the third floor of The Keil Administration Building.
