Bibb Schools Supt. Romain Dallemand says he hopes to start advertising for new central-office jobs by the end of the month.
Last week, he announced plans to cut 16 leadership positions and add six new full-time jobs in July. The school board took a final vote Thursday that gave unanimous approval of the plan.
Dallemand says he plans to hire a firm to select finalists from a nationwide search. The firm would conduct preliminary screenings and interview candidates, Dallemand said.
He says employees in the 16 jobs he eliminated can apply for the new jobs.
Also Thursday, Bibb County school board members agreed to start monthly committee meetings an hour and a half later.
Tommy Barnes, president of the school board, says committee meetings would start at 4 p.m. to accommodate teachers and families who want to attend.
