Clarke County BOE Move Towards Hiring a New Superintendent at Tonight's Meeting
Clarke County Board of Education members are set to take another step towards hiring a new superintendent at their meeting this evening.
After a months-long search, the district announced that former Clarke Central High School principal Robbie Hooker was the sole finalist for the superintendent’s position, which current Superintendent Xernona Thomas was planning to vacate at the end of the year.
Given Hooker’s experience in the school district, board members have advanced his start date to October 10, assuming the board approves his hire this month.
In addition to serving as principal of Clarke Central, Hooker also taught at Coile Middle School, and served as principal of Burney-Harris-Lyons Middle School. He comes back to Clarke County from the Social Circle City Schools, where he was named Superintendent in 2019.
The Board of Education meets tonight at 6PM. The meeting will be streamed on the district YouTube page.
