The Bibb County Board of Education will try again Thursday for a called board meeting behind closed doors that could include a discussion of Superintendent Romain Dallemands future.
A meeting planned for last week was postponed less than an hour before it was scheduled to begin. This weeks meeting is slated for 5 p.m. Thursday.
The agenda said the board will discuss personnel matters, property acquisition and pending litigation -- all scheduled to take place in executive, or closed, session. Any actions would need to be approved in a public portion of the meeting.
The meetings were scheduled after sources told The Telegraph that Dallemand was seeking a buyout of his employment contract. Dallemand was awarded a new contract in December.
The called board meeting is scheduled to preface a pair of court hearings slated for Feb. 1. One of those cases seeks to have Dallemands current and original contracts both declared invalid and to stop any payments under them. That suit claims the boards Dec. 3 vote didnt match Dallemands new contract, making the contract illegal and void.
The other Feb. 1 court hearing is in a case filed by former Chief Financial Officer Ron Collier, who wants a Bibb County Superior Court judge to stop payments on a lease agreement with the Central Georgia Partnership for Individual and Community Development to support the Macon Promise Neighborhood program.
Earlier this month, the school board attempted but failed to pick a president.
The board split into groups of four to support nominees Lynn Farmer and Wanda West, leaving the boards treasurer, Susan Sipe, serve as the boards interim president.
