Mitchell County Schools Superintendent Search Update

The Mitchell County Board of Education continues to make progress in naming a new superintendent.

Among the steps completed in the process, adopted qualifications for the position; approved and disseminated a recruitment brochure; reviewed applications; and interviewed candidates that appeared to have closely met the qualifications.

Forty applications were received from a broad range of applicants. From these, a number of candidates were chosen for close review and interviewed as the Board sought to determine those applicants best qualified for the position.

At least 14 calendar days before taking final action on the position, the Board is required to make available to the public documents for inspection and/or copying concerning as many as three persons under consideration whom the Board has determined to be best qualified for the position.

During a called Board meeting on April 30, 2021, one applicant, Dr. Rowland Cummings has been named by the Board to be the best qualified for the position. Information on Dr. Cummings will be available at the Board office and posted on the school district web site. The Board hopes to have the new superintendent in place during the month of June.
