    The Atlanta Board of Education Statement:  Extending the Superintendent Search


    The Atlanta Board of Education has decided to extend the search for the next Superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools. This decision comes after careful consideration and reflects the Board's commitment to leveraging the strong leadership profile developed with substantial community input. In light of this, the Board, in collaboration with its experienced recruitment partner, Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, is taking steps to maintain the integrity of the search process.  


    Atlanta Board of Education Chair Erika Mitchell emphasized the Board's commitment to a secure and respectful hiring process, stating, "We bear a profound responsibility to our community, faculty, and students to identify and appoint the most suitable candidate to fulfill our obligations." Further, Mitchell stressed the importance of continuing the search and reassuring that our community trusts the process, “We have to get this right." 


    The Board is committed to a deliberate, transparent, and inclusive search process aimed at finding a candidate who aligns closely with the established leadership criteria. This approach demonstrates the Board's dedication to excellence and its resolve to ensure that the future leader of Atlanta Public Schools embodies the qualities and vision necessary for the district's success.  The Board's decision to extend the search process underscores its determination to find a Superintendent who meets and exceeds the expectations set forth by the community and the leadership profile.
