Hamilton County Interim School Superintendent Wants to Win Job “Fair and Square”

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Hamilton County’s Interim School Superintendent wants to win the job of Superintendent fair and square.

That’s why he’s asking 3 school board members who nominated him, to withdraw their motion.

Dr. Kirk Kelly held a news conference this afternoon to explain why he wants the process to be open and fair.

He wants it to be available to other applicants, and the process to be transparent.

Dr. Kirk Kelly who is the acting superintendent said, ” I feel that that’s the best um, interest of this community. One of the things that you have is, uh, as a leader, there are two things that I see that we need to do for this school system at this point: One is to lead, and the other is to heal. And so we want to make sure that everybody has an opportunity to be involved in this. And so that is my uh, reason for making that decision, and that is nine members of the board voted to select the search firm, and so I want to go through that process.”

Kelly says it could take anywhere from 3 months to 8-months to go though the selection process.
