Stephens Co. School Superintendent Search Process Making Progress

The Stephens County Board of Education continues to move ahead with selecting the next Superintendent for the School System.

Last Thursday, the school board met with the search firm helping it through the process of finding a replacement for Sherrie Whiten, who is retiring at the end of March.

Representatives from the search firm, King-Cooper and Associates of Thomaston, Georgia talked with the Board of Education about traits that board members want to see in its next superintendent.

They also presented the board with an example of a survey that could be put out to get input from the community and talked about a possible timeline for conducting interviews.

The school system is still accepting applications for the superintendent’s position.

The application deadline is the close of business on January 31.

The Board of Education is working to have a new superintendent named by Whiten’s retirement at the end of March.
