The Jenkins Independent Board of Education now hopes to have a new superintendent by June 23.
The board met in special session June 9 to discuss the superintendent candidates presented by a search committee established for that purpose. The board went into executive session after the meeting was called to order, and emerged after a lengthy discussion with no decision on the new superintendent.
Board Chairman Tracy Goff told The Mountain Eagle this is the fifth time the board has conducted a search for a new superintendent during his tenure as a board member, and that each time has been a stressful experience.
After the meeting, Goff said the board is making progress and hopes to make a hire no later than the next meeting, which will be on Monday, June 23.
