Richmond County school Superintendent Frank Roberson met with his physicians and school officials Friday to discuss his pending work status, according to a statement from the school system.

Roberson has been absent since February 2011, when he underwent emergency surgery for a brain condition. He returned to work part time in December but works no more than six hours per week.

On April 17, school board President Alex How­ard said members would meet to discuss Ro­berson’s status before Friday, but a meeting was never called.

The board plans to meet next week to discuss the matter in more detail, according to the statement.

Nothing against Roberson but

Nothing against Roberson but he needs to realize that he is not capable of the job and needs to resign so the RCBOE can move on.

It's time for Dr. Roberson to step down and allow our BOE to search for a person capable of coming to work every day. Our school system has been in limbo too long.

I am sure that Dr. Roberson

I am sure that Dr. Roberson and the school board realize they cannor move forward without a strong leader. Dr. Roberson is ill and unable to fulfil his contract, Dr. Whitson is retiring thereby leaving the county without a viable leader. It does not take much to figure this one out RCSS start the search and be quick about it.

As long as they carried one

As long as they carried one of the prior supers that was pretty much useless, don't be surprised if they continue to subsidize Roberson.

Clarification: I'm not suggesting Roberson is useless; just that the BOE doesn't have a good track record of running the system like a business.

"the BOE doesn't have a good track record".....PERIOD!

Since there is absolutely no logic for being without a superintendent for 14 months, there must be some other motivation for them not doing what they should have already done. I can't help but wonder how long they would keep Roberson if he were white. My guess is that he would have been replaced 9 months ago. Don't kid yourself folks. This has nothing to do with the best interest of the students or the school system.

Well, it seem that there are

Well, it seem that there are staff who go visit parents, shopping, and other places on my tax dollars. I feel that he can and have made much improvement. Some of these board members are the most lazy group I have meet. I have call to the broad and never get anyone, even after you leaving seven messages. Thats why I have decide to call to Atlanta and then maybe the staff can work. Here is a man who didn't give up on our kids and is still fighting to get better, when these lazy department head don't work but 5 out of the 40 hours and there is nothing wrong with that. Some make so much money and are buddy with some who they know are not doing there job. So lets be real about this. I WILL BE AT THE MEETING and see the Board Lies.
