COLUMBUS, GA - The Muscogee County School District is one step closer to finding its new superintendent.
The board held a brief meeting Wednesday morning before breaking into executive session to begin interviewing superintendent candidates.
The board interviewed the top four finalists, spending an hour and 45 minutes with each candidate.
School officials say there is no guarantee that the next superintendent is one of these four candidates and have a back up plan.
"Basically we just go back to the drawing board, we would sit down with our search firm and say okay these four didn't work let's look at some of the ones you brought us before and see if anybody else in there we want to know more about or we want you to go back and start recruiting again," School Board Chair Cathy Williams says.
Phenix City School Superintendent Dr. Larry DiChiara confirms he is not one of the finalists for the job.
