BOE works on ad for next school superintendent

CARNESVILLE – The search for the next Franklin County Schools superintendent will be in full swing soon.

Saturday morning, the Franklin County Board of Education met with Dr. Sam King, director of the superintendent search team with Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA), during the board’s annual retreat.

King walked the board through the search process, and provided a draft advertisement for the board to review and make changes to.
