Current Mequon-Thiensville Superintendent Demond Means is the finalist for the position of superintendent of the Clarke County School District in Athens, Georgia.
Means was in Georgia on Monday at a public meeting, but was back in Thiensville on Tuesday. In 2015, Means briefly headed the Opportunity Schools and Partnership Program, but he resigned citing the adversarial climate the program brought with it, conflict between the Legislature, Milwaukee Public Schools and Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele.
The Governor of Georgia has been trying to create a similar “turn-around” district for low-performing schools.
Means told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that no contract has been finalized.
