The Washington County Board of Education continues to make progress in naming a new superintendent.

The Board worked with Georgia School Boards Association Search Director, Dr. Samuel King, to identify the characteristics desired in the new superintendent; adopted qualifications for the position; approved a recruitment announcement; reviewed applications; and interviewed candidates that appeared to have closely met the qualifications.

Thirty-one applications were received from a broad range of applicants. From these applicants, eleven candidates were chosen for close review and were interviewed as the Board sought to determine those applicants best qualified for the position.

At least 14 calendar days before taking final action on the position, the Board is required to make available to the public documents for inspection and/or copying concerning any finalists under consideration whom the Board has determined to be best qualified for the position.

Three finalists have been named by the Washington County Board. The finalists are in alphabetical order below:

• Dr. Rickey Edmond

• Dr. Sean Kelly

• Mr. Michael Shaddix

Information on the candidates is available at the Board office and is posted on the school district web site at www.washington.k12.ga.us.

The Board plans to have the new superintendent hired and in place by July 1, 2019 upon Dr. Hinton’s retirement.
