The school board voted not to renew current superintendent Jean Quigg's contract in February.

Since then, the Georgia School Boards Association has been searching for someone to take over the position.

Board members say they will consider any applicant who has the qualifications for the job -- whether they are currently employed in the school system or not.

The school board says it hopes to have the position filled by July 1st.

Applications are due by April 29.

    To D. Morgan: Sorry to break it to you, but FL is about to pass a law that K-12 students cannot wear baggy pants below the hips, expose skin, underwear, and bra straps where they can be seen. This is FL Legislature's reason: When these students graduate, they will have to dress professionally to interview well for a job in the adult world so they want our students to get in that mind set early. It's natural for our kids to copy fashion styles of their media idols, & HipHop music artist and not other clothing styles. Clothing stores do offer choices. Our school board believe these styles cause too much distraction at school. Baggy pants are also a saftey hazard. If you have to run out of a burning building or move in a hurry, you will trip and fall. This action is similar when the short mini skirt was popular and worn in public school in the 1960's. The school board adopted dress codes to lower the skirt lengths. I don't remember anyone ever sent home. The styles changed in the early 1970's lowering the skirt hemlines anyway. Trends come and go, and in a few years the FL Legislature will repeal this outdated baggy pants law. I hope kids will develop their own personal appropriate style for school without letting the media dictate to them. *There have been many school teachers, administrators, superintendents, thrown out of work in FL. Maybe they can land this higher paying position in Thomas Co.
