Williamson County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney has been chosen by the Fulton County School Board in Georgia as the only finalist to fill a vacant superintendent position, reports ajc.com.
Fulton County District is Georgia’s fourth largest district with 95,000 students and 106 schools. Williamson County Schools has 48 schools and approximately 40,000 students.
The Williamson County School Board released the following statement:
On behalf of the Williamson County Board of Education, I want to thank Dr. Looney for his service to Williamson County Schools and wish him the best in his next endeavor. Should Dr. Looney sign a contract with Fulton County Schools on May 2, the WCS Board, at its regular May meeting, plans to name an interim superintendent and establish the effective date of that leadership transition.
We have a strong leadership team in place at the Central Office and in our schools, and our teachers and staff are focused on success for all students. Our students come prepared to learn and achieve, and our parental involvement is second to none.
For more than 25 years, Williamson County Schools has been recognized as a top performing school district in the state, and I believe that will continue for years to come. The Williamson County community should expect a seamless transition as we move on to our next Superintendent of Schools.
