Board of Education Announces Sole Finalist for Superintendent
On Monday, Aug. 8, the Clarke County School District Board of Education formally announced Dr. Robbie Hooker as the sole finalist for the position of Superintendent. A highly respected leader with ties to CCSD and more than a decade of administrative experience in Clarke County schools, Dr. Hooker currently serves as the Superintendent of Social Circle City Schools, a position he has held since 2019.
Pending final approval of the Board later this month, Dr. Hooker will assume full responsibilities for this role effective Oct. 10. Since Superintendent Dr. Xernona Thomas announced last year that she would retire at the end of 2022, the Board has carefully weighed options for filling this crucial role. Those options included appointing an Interim Superintendent while conducting a search or moving directly to appoint a Superintendent. Given Dr. Hooker’s unique experience and qualifications, the latter option provided the best opportunity for a seamless transition.
