Public Gets Voice in Superintendent Search

Meridian School District officials plan to search for a new superintendent through the Mississippi School Board Association.

The search process will include taking input on what kind of superintendent the public wants, by giving it a chance to submit written questions to potential candidates. The answers to those questions will be given at a community forum.

"The community will be able to submit questions to the school board association before the community forums, and the questions will be asked at the community forums," said interim superintendent Dr. Terry Larabee. "So the community will have some kind of idea what kind of philosophies the applicants have."

No date for the community forum has been set. School officials hope to have a new superintendent by June.

    The first question that I would ask potential candidates is "what are your plans to make the public schools safer?" I used to teach in Meridian Public Schools. Right now, I teach in a prison, and I feel safer there than I did at Meridian High School.

    Dr. Larabee, inspite of being a product of the Meridian Public School System, I feel that I am competent to ask without having them proof read.
