The Marietta Daily Journal reports that the board is expected to name high-ranking district leader Chris Ragsdale as interim superintendent.
In early February, Cobb Schools Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa shocked the school board by announcing that he would be stepping down at the end of May.
Hinojosa, who was named superintendent of the state’s second largest school district in June 2011, said he intends to return to his home in Dallas, Texas where he could be with his family, which includes his wife and his 91-year-old mother.
Hinojosa arrived in Cobb at a fractious time, following the retirement
of former Superintendent Fred Sanderson and with substantial turnover on
the school board. But now the school board is searching for his permanent replacement.
