Superintendent search continues in H'burg

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The search continues in Hattiesburg for a new school superintendent. Tuesday night, Dr. Harold Fisher, a consultant with the Mississippi School Boards Association, conducted two public meetings to get input on a replacement for Dr. Annie Wimbish.

She's leaving the district on June 30th. 

Dr. Fisher first met with employees and staff of the school district. Two hours later, he met with parents and other residents. 

Fisher's organization has been hired by the Hattiesburg School Board to help them find a new superintendent.

"We take the information that we receive from these two stakeholder meetings, summarize the information and give it to the board," said Dr. Fisher. "The board will use the information in the final process in their decisions that they make, concerning the next administrator," he said.

The Mississippi School Boards Association began taking applications for the new Hattiesburg school superintendent 2 weeks ago. The deadline to apply is July 9th.

School officials say an interim superintendent will be in place by July 1st. They say an announcement on a permanent superintendent could be made by September 1st.

That applicant would take office on or before January 1st of next year.
