During the Tuesday, June 7 Madison County School Board meeting, Superintendent Doug Brown provided the board with recommendations for the renewal of contracts for the administration positions for the 2016-2017 school year.
The contract for Dr. Willie Miles, principal of Madison County Central School (MCCS), was not recommended for renewal. As a result, MCCS will have a new principal for the 2016-2017 school year.
In order to discuss everything regarding this position, the board held a workshop on Monday, June 13. A portion of this workshop was aimed at developing a job description specific to the principal position at MCCS.
During the Tuesday, July 5 meeting, Brown announced that the board was also in search of a new principal for Greenville Elementary School.
20-23 candidates applied for each position. The board hopes to get the number of candidates down to three to five for each position and conduct interviews next week. If none of the candidates selected satisfy, the board will keep searching.
“We are hopeful we can get this done in a timely manner,” said Brown.
The board hopes to have come to a decision by the Tuesday, July 19 meeting, which will be held at 6 p.m. at the district school board office, located at 210 NE Duval Ave.
