RCBOE close to announcing superintendent candidates

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - With the start of the new school year fast approaching, board members said they're trying to speed up the process, but will it be in time?

"Well, that's not going to happen," said Venus Cain, board president. "I really wish it could have happened that way, but it's not. This is a process, and a very long process you go through."

Current superintendent Frank Roberson's contract expires August 22; board members voted earlier this year not to renew it.

Cain said she has some pretty specific ideas for what she wants to see in his replacement.

"No nonsense," said Cain. "Someone that's going to hold people accountable, not only the staff, but also expectations for the parents and the whole community."

Even under this deadline, Cain said, they'll get the job done.

"But until we get a superintendent in place, everyone has buckled down, settled down, not only the staff, the children, the parents, the community, we will have a seamless transition."
