DECATUR- The search for a new
superintendent is now underway for Decatur Public Schools.
After seven years as superintendent,
Gloria Davis is retiring at the end of this academic year.
The school board is doing a national
search to find her replacement. They're using a firm called HYA to
help in the search.
Board president Brian Hodges says
public input is an important part of the process. He says there will be many meetings the public will be able to attend, and there will be a website for feedback. He says major
priorities are improving academics, the culture and climate, student
discipline and finances.
He says the firm will conduct extensive
background checks on the candidates.
If all goes according to plan they
hope to be interviewing candidates this December and have a final
selection by February.
