Board begins talking superintendent search

Long before Baldwin County Board of Education members decide who will replace schools Superintendent Faron Hollinger next year, they face a series of decisions about how to conduct the search — the system’s first in nearly eight years.

Board members gathered Thursday for a brainstorming session on their preferences for the hiring process and the candidates it will produce. The meeting was facilitated by Sally Howell, executive director of the Alabama Association of School Boards.

“You have time. There are school systems where their superintendents have resigned, or announced their retirements, with one month. That doesn’t give the board a whole lot of options. So ku dos to Dr. Hollinger for giving you the time,” Howell said
