Members of the Meridian Public School Board decided Thursday night to wait a few months before continuing the search for district superintendent.
After meeting with Mississippi School Board Association consultants, members of the board agreed to wait until October 1st, 2010 to begin the search. The board will take applications for superintendent from October 1st through November 19th.
"Anybody who would want to interview with us, and apply for a position with us would not have time at this time. So we think once school has begun and they have the opportunity to start in October, then we'll get more applicants and better applicants," explains Dr. Don Evans, the President of the Meridian Public School Board.
Currently, Dr. Randy McCoy is serving as the new, temporary superintendent. He attended a special called meeting for the Meridian School Board earlier this week. It was his first meeting.
