The board approved the transfer upon the recommendation of Superintendent Mitchell Guice.
“Normally in the past the board has interviewed candidates for administrative positions,” explained Board Chairperson Lisa McKissick.
“But due to the AASB recommendation that the board not be involved in interviews, we chose at this time not to interview. This is alittle different than the way it has been in the past.”
The board also accepted the resignation of J.R. Brooks as board attorney.
“I hereby resign as school board attorney,” said Brooks in the letter read by Superintendent Guice.
“It has been my pleasure to work with the superintendent and the school board for several years but I believe it appropriate for the school board to select another attorney for future legal representation and advice.”
