The DeKalb County Board of Education ended its meeting Friday without a new superintendent, a surprising twist after two weeks of members signifying support for finalist Rudy Crew, despite public outcry over his selection.
The school board spent several hours in a closed session where they were expected to discuss their official offer before voting.
“The board met for several hours earlier today,” read a statement sent to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution late Friday afternoon. “While we cannot comment on confidential details discussed in executive session, we can confirm that the board has not voted on the superintendent candidate at this time.”
