CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) -
In another win for the Randolph County School Board, the Court of Appeals affirmed the lower court ruling that the board had the right to terminate Superintendent Bobby Jenkins' contract.
The School board fired Jenkins in September of 2009 and has been fighting the issue in the courts ever since. Jenkins was ordered to immediately vacate his office, hand over his school property, and not return without permission from the board.
He was also found in contempt for not allowing board members to place items on the agenda. School Board members hope they can now put this behind them and move forward.
"The board won this overwhelmingly and they're pleased to have this behind them and so we can go on and proceed hopefully with doing the best we can to rehabilitate the Randolph County School System and improve it and move it forward," said Randolph Schools Attorney Tommy Coleman.
Jenkins still has 10 days to appeal the ruling to the Georgia Supreme Court. The decision also allows another suit he's filed against the board for wrongful termination to move forward.
