In what comes as a surprise to almost no one, Clarke County School Superintendent Demond Means is leaving the district.
Flagpole Magazine reports School Board president LaKeisha Gantt announced the board has entered into negotiations for his exit. That statement came after the school board met for nearly four hours behind closed doors.
The manner is which Means is leaving is unclear. There has been no comment as to whether the superintendent is resigning, negotiating a buyout, or being terminated.
The Clarke County School District issued a letter to clarify Superintendent Demond Means’ status in the wake of comments from Dr. Means after a tense meeting of the Clarke County School Board Thursday night.
It states: Dr. Demond means remains under contract and continues to carry out his duties as Superintendent of the Clarke County School District, as referenced by board policy “CE – School Superintendent.”
After a contentious few years and a tense meeting last night, school superintendent Demond Means implied that he would resign. Lee Shearer of the Athens Banner Herald joined WUGA’s Alexia Ridley to discusses the possible resignation.
