ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Dougherty County school board is closer to picking a new Superintendent to lead the system. They held another closed door session Tuesday to interview candidates for the job.

39-people applied for the job. Board Chairman David Maschke won't tell us how many made the first round of interviews, but says the board is working thoroughly and deliberately to find the best person for the job.

He said, "When we get down to a shorter list or candidate, that's when we're going to be extensive, more extensive research as far as background checks, criminal background checks, financial background checks, as well as going beyond just checking references."

Maschke says the board hopes to have a new superintendent in place by February or March.
