ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Thirty nine people applied to become the next Superintendent of Dougherty County Schools.

Sixteen of the applicants are from out of state and one's from the United Kingdom. The Georgia School Board Association will now review the applications to make sure the candidates meet the minimum requirements.

"We think that it's possible, depending on schedules if someone is already involved in a commitment somewhere else that we could have a new superintendent onboard in January or February, but we're hoping certainly not later than March because we would like the new superintendent to be here to review personnel and also be involved in budget preparations for the next year," said David Maschke Dougherty County School Board Chairman.

Once finalists have been selected the School Board plans to hold a public forum to allow the community to meet the candidates and give their opinion.
