August 10-- The Toombs County school board held it's regular monthly meeting Thursday night but made no decison on the selection of a new school superintendent to replace Dr. Kendall Brantley who is retiring.
Dr. Brantley says the board will hold a called meeting August 23rd to further consider the five finalists for the position.
"We really try to look into the background and be sure there's a good match between the candidates and our school system. We try to look carefully at that and our board has been cautious in that regard," Dr. Brantley says.
The five are Dr. Kim Corley, principal of Lyons Primary School; Chuck Ellington, Treutlen County school superintendent; Dr. Ryan Flowers, an assistant principal at Vidalia High School and head of the Southeast Early College and Career Academy; Dr. Darrel May from the state Department of Education; and Dr. Shelli Tyre, an elementary school principal in Clinch County.
