15 candidates for Atlanta superintendent reviewed

The group searching for Atlanta’s next schools superintendent has begun vetting about 15 candidates for the job, said Board of Education Chairman Reuben McDaniel on Monday.

Finalists would be chosen from those candidates and any others that come forward in the next couple of weeks, McDaniel said.

The Superintendent Search Committee plans to meet again Dec. 17, and the school board would narrow down candidates at a meeting soon afterward.
