Cherokee County School Board Calls Meeting to Appoint Superintendent of Schools

The Cherokee County School Board will meet for a called meeting on Friday, Dec. 18, to consider the appointment of a new Superintendent of Schools.

The School Board established a process to attract and vet a new Superintendent of Schools that began on September 3, 2015. The process included a statewide publication of a notice of vacancy that attracted inquiries/applications from four states, hours of individual review by Board members of letters of interest, applications, résumés, independent education verification, and background screens, as well as two extended executive sessions of the Board.

The School Board will consider the appointment and employment subject to contract negotiations of Dr. Brian V. Hightower as Superintendent of Schools at a special called meeting on Friday, Dec. 18, at 6 p.m. at the Historic Canton High School/School Board Auditorium located at 111 Academy Street, Canton, GA 30114.

A presentation regarding Dr. Hightower’s credentials and experience will precede an opportunity for public input and a vote of School Board regarding Dr. Hightower’s appointment.
