The Bibb County school board continues to review 23 superintendent applications.
The board met Tuesday during a called meeting to further study the applications, which were officially given to the board April 16.
The school board did not make a decision Tuesday, and members are still reviewing applications, board member Lynn Farmer said.
The board has set several qualifications for the systems new leader, including a preference that the next superintendent have previous experience leading a school system similar to Bibb County.
The Georgia School Boards Association, which helped conduct the superintendent search, separated the 23 candidates into three tiers -- from the most qualified to the least qualified. A majority of the applicants are from Georgia.
Meanwhile, the board also approved a resolution to support and partner with the One Macon initiative.
Representatives presented information Tuesday about that effort, which is made up of a group of local organizations with a plan to improve the community.
Our goal is to raise prosperity and wealth in our community, co-chairman Robbo Hatcher said.
And the local school system is a big part of that initiative. The areas of focus are schools, jobs and places, and representatives specifically requested a strong business-education partnership in Macon.
Partnership is the key word there, co-chairwoman Kathryn Dennis said. Its about how to support the good work that youre doing.
