There are two candidates left in the running to replace Alto Park Elementary School Principal Angela Brock, who will retire April 30, and one of them is expected to be recommended to the Floyd County Board of Education at the March 6 meeting, according to Superintendent John Jackson.
Brock announced her plans to retire in January and the board approved her retirement along with a handful of other personnel changes during a called meeting Tuesday.
Jackson said interviews were held Monday and from those two candidates will have follow-up interviews. When the system fills the principal opening, it will have completed four principal hires in 2018.
During the Feb. 6 meeting, the board filled three principal vacancies: Shelly Bell at Cave Spring Elementary, Tanya Welchel at Johnson Elementary and Carrie Graves at Glenwood Primary.
Also on Tuesday, the board approved Carroll Daniel Construction for the Model High football press box expansion, which includes HVAC and PA system installation. The company submitted the lower of two bids for the project at $245,257, which is $56,068 less than the bid from R.K. Redding Construction.
This was the second time bids have been requested for the project. The board put aside around $2 million last year for athletic facility improvements around the system. This resulted in work on the baseball field at Armuchee High, the football field at Coosa High and the Pepperell High track — the press box is the next step.
The system is working to complete the project before football season begins.
