Why do we need an area superintendent? What value does an additional level of administration bring? This appears to be a waste of taxpayer dollars!

It certainly makes sense to have a superintendent who focuses solely on the performance of one specific area if indeed there are metrics in place that will hold him accountable for the performance of all the schools in Sandy Springs. Hopefully, in a follow up article, the Patch will ask that question. You may also want to inquire about the North Carolina connection. Apparently he and the new Fulton County Superintendent of Schools are both doctoral candidates at the first PhD class at Wingate University in North Carolina. I assume his hiring was no coincidence and that he was hired as a crony of Superintendent Avossa's. It's a pity there isn't a role for some of the great educators who have come through the system and done good work here in Georgia without having to reach out to North Carolina but again, the proof will be in the metrics and whether or not Sandy Springs schools finally live up to their potential under his leadership..
