The Tullahoma Board of Education is beginning its search to find a replacement for Tullahoma City School’s outgoing director. A special meeting is planned for October 2nd at Tullahoma High School to obtain input from residents about what skills and qualifications they deem the replacement candidates should have. Dr. Tammy Grissom, Tennessee School Boards Association executive director, will lead groups in discussion designed to determine their views about the issues and challenges facing the school system and the director’s position. Board members agreed in August they prefer candidates have a doctoral degree plus administrative level experience. Dr Dan Lawson announced earlier this year that he would not be seeking an extension to his contract which expires June 30, 2013. The board has agreed to have a replacement in place before then with a May 1, 2013, deadline.
