APS Board of Education to Decide Friday on Superintendent Search Committee
The school board will decide whether to assemble a new superintendent search committee.
The Board of Education for Atlanta Public Schools is set to meet Friday to decide whether to assemble a superintendent search committee.
In December, the board approved extending the contract of Superintendent Erroll Davis for another 18 months beyond his current contract, which ends in June. Buckhead's BOE representative Nancy Meister and Brenda J. Muhammad cast the lone dissenting votes.
Although Davis' contracts aren't up for almost two years, because of a contractual provision, if the board finds a permanent superintendent and hires him or her, Davis' contract expires after 90 days.
Meister told Buckhead Patch in December, "We need to find a superintendent that fits our needs."
She said her decision to oppose Davis' contract extension was not completely because she disagrees with Davis' decisions for removal and reassignment of North Atlanta High's key administrators, including principal Mark MyGrant.
The school board will meet Friday at 2 p.m. at Atlanta Public Schools headquarters at 130 Trinity Ave.
Should the board assemble a superintendent search committee now? Should they just allow Davis to serve the remaining two years of his contracts? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
