The application window for the Griffin Spalding County Schools (GSCS)

and nation applied. Applications were accepted as long as they were
postmarked before or on the deadline date, as directed by the GSCS Board of
Education. Twenty-one people applied for the position, including candidates
from Ohio, Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. The applicants
from Georgia include candidates from the Southern Crescent region as well as
others from across the state. Seven of the applicants are experienced
Superintendents, and other applicants include five Assistant Superintendents,
four Central Office administrators, four Principals, and a leader from the
business community.
"We are pleased to receive such a strong group of applications from many
well-qualified candidates. This is a very positive reflection on the GriffinSpalding community. People from across the state and beyond hold the local
school system in high regard, and recognize this area as a wonderful place to
live, work, and play" stated Dr. Stephanie Gordy, Executive Director of Griffin

The GSCS Board of Education will review all applications in early May in order
to complete interviews and identify finalists by early June. The Board intends
to hire the new Superintendent to begin on July 1, 2015.
