More known about DCSS Superintendent candidates

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  WALB News Ten now knows the name of two of the three finalists for the Dougherty School Superintendent's job.

Roy Gregory Brooks of Little Rock, Arkansas acknowledges he was a finalist. WALB News 10 was able to briefly speak with Roy Gregory Brooks by phone to confirm yes, he interviewed with the Dougherty County School Board in December, but said out of respect for the ongoing process and professionalism he didn't want to comment past acknowledging he was one of the finalists.

Brooks runs an educational consulting firm, but was Superintendent of the Little Rock, Arkansas School District until the school board bought out his contract in May of 2007. Of the split Brooks said the district was dealing with racial issues.  Board members Anita Williams Brown and Michael Windom raised questions about Brooks in an email to David Maschke that also included a blog about the racial issues in the district.

The third candidate, a woman who withdrew her name, apparently did so because she had applied for other superintendent jobs, she felt she had a better chance of getting. Dr. Joshua Murfree was the only named candidate by the board.

The Dougherty County school board still faces open records litigation for failure to release the 3 finalists names.
