The Georgia Appeals court ruled that former Randolph County School Superintendent Bobby Jenkins was properly dismissed last year.

 The higher court ruled that the lower court's ruling was correct, when it found for the school board.

The courts determined that the board acted within its authority to fire Jenkins for withholding their discussion items for the agenda. The court said that Jenkins can appeal to the state Supreme Court if he chooses.

School Board Attorney Tommy Coleman tells WALB that the ruling also allows Jenkins' wrongful termination suit against the board to continue.

Former board member Henry Cook has already served a short jail term after being held in contempt by the lower court.

WALB will have more details on this story later today.
