Fulton school board to finalize new superintendent pick

The Fulton County school board has scheduled a meeting Thursday to finalize the appointment of new superintendent Jeff Rose.

The meeting will begin at noon at the school district’s North Learning Center, located at 450 Northridge Parkway in Sandy Springs.

School board leaders announced earlier this month they picked the Oregon educator to be the district’s superintendent. He replaces former superintendent Robert Avossa, who left last June to become superintendent in Florida’s Palm Beach County.

Rose has been superintendent of the Beaverton school district since 2011. Fulton board members plan to offer Rose, 43, a three-year contract and $295,000 annual salary.

He’s expected to join Georgia’s fourth-largest school district June 1.
