Richmond County school board selects finalist for superintendent


The Richmond County Board of Education selected one finalist for the superintendent position Monday night.  

That finalist is Dr. Angela Pringle, who is currently a regional superintendent in the Dekalb County School District.

Board members were expected to announce three candidates for the position, but after an hour-long executive session, they announced only one.  

Board President Venus Cain said she is confident in Pringle's abilities. 

"I think we have a good choice, and I need the community to support the board because this has been a long process for us," Cain said. "We didn't take it lightly, and we put a lot of work and time into it - reading all those applications and coming up with questions that we felt were important to not only just us but to the community as a whole."

The community will have 14 days, starting Tuesday, to ask questions about Pringle or address their concerns by contacting any school board member. Pringle will also have a second interview, although the date has not been set. 

If the board does not hire Pringle, they will have to restart the search process.
