In September, the Atlanta Board of Education announced it will not renew current Superintendent Meria Carstarphen’s contract.
Carstarphen recently appeared at an Oct. 10 Buckhead Council of Neighborhoods meeting and spoke on her choice to continue fighting to stay in her current position.
The district is asking for feedback from the community about the traits and skills the new superintendent should have, a press release said.
Carstarphen’s contract expires June 30, 2020 and a new superintendent will begin employment on July 1, 2020.
