The meeting will be conducted at the Executive Boardroom at Georgia Highlands College, and Director of Title 1/Testing Robert Young said the meeting is scheduled to last until 5 p.m. but could possibly run longer.
Young said board members will not take any action following the meeting.
Board members must name a new superintendent to lead Rome City Schools before Gayland Cooper retires on Dec. 1.
The Georgia School Boards Association has been imperative in the search for a superintendent, Chairwoman Judy Sims said during last Thursday’s called meeting.
Jim Puckett, coordinator of professional development and superintendent search legislative support with the Georgia School Boards Association, was present at the meeting and informed board members of the number of applicants that met the necessary criteria set by the board. From 30, they’ve further narrowed the pool to the four candidates who will be interviewed at the meeting.
“The board has used the Georgia School Boards Association to assist us in this process, and Dr. Puckett has been our main liaison,” Sims said.
“The Georgia School Board sent out about 1,400 brochures (advertising the position), and they advertised on their website as well as our website. They composed and submitted to us the community survey. All that’s been done.”
