BOLIVAR COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — West Bolivar Schools have at least 19 candidates who want to become the new Superintendent of the District. The applications were collected by the Mississippi School Board Association between June 7th and June 21st. The District’s Board of Trustees met with Denotris Jackson of the MSBA Wednesday to discuss the applications. No names were released, but Jackson revealed that the applicants include two current superintendents, six former superintendents, two assistant superintendents, two program directors, two curriculum directors, two special education directors, one school principal, one assistant principal, and a charter school teacher. 10 of the hopefuls have doctorate degrees, eight of the applicants are female, and 11 are male. The next step for West Bolivar will be a review of the candidates to decide which ones to call in for interviews for the position. West Bolivar fired former Superintendent James Johnson in April shortly after he had suggested closing the high school and moving students to the middle school building. Last week the board also removed the interim superintendent Larry Walker who had been appointed to replace Johnson.
