School board decides on qualifications

The Richmond County school board has agreed today to a list of qualifications for its next superintendent.

In a called meeting this afternoon, the board voted to make a doctorate degree preferred but not mandatory. The board also said the next superintendent should have experience in multi-cultural relations.

The search, which is being conducted through the Georgia School Boards Association, will also include advertisement for the open job in The New York Times, The Atlanta Journal and Constitution and the AASA Bulletin.

The search began after Superintendent Dana Bedden recently accepted a superintendent job in Irving, Texas.
