Help offered in superintendent search

CAIRO — The search for a Grady County superintendent is in its initial phases. Dr. Tommy Pharis, the current superintendent, recently announced his decision to retire later this year.

On Tuesday, the Grady County Board of Education held a special meeting featuring Bill Sampson, consultant for the Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA).

Sampson presented the benefits of using the GSBA during a superintendent search.

Since 1988, the GSBA has aided in more than 246 superintendent searches.

The GSBA helps local school boards find the right person for the job while ensuring that the local board retains total decision-making control. The GSBA aids by advising the board during every step in the search.

Using the GSBA would cost $6,000-$8,000.

“I thought the presentation Mr. Sampson gave us on Tuesday was very thorough,” school board member Scott Higginbotham said. “It sounds like using the GSBA would be extremely helpful in aiding our search. We will decide at the regular board meeting (next) Tuesday night which direction we will go concerning our search for the next superintendent of Grady County Schools.”
