DeKalb County Board of Education member Stan Jester posted on his blog Sunday that Brown becomes Specialist II Compliance in the district’s Facilities and Operations Division. Everett Patrick, the director of employment services, will become the interim chief human capital management officer until the district finds a permanent replacement.
Brown has not been seen in the office since before the district's winter break. He missed two board meetings and has made more than $30,000 of his annual $175,000 salary without reporting to work. District officials have not addressed the absence, only saying after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Brown's mysterious absence that he was still employed by the district.
