The three candidates in the running for the position are Dr. Jose Gilberto Bosa Jr., executive director of Instructional Services with Clarke County School District; Dr. Lewis Dale Holloway Jr., the current Clark County school superintendent; and Dr. Michael Scott Winstead, director of curriculum and accountability with the Knox County, TN. school system.
By law, the school board must announce the finalists and release application information to the public two weeks before making a selection, said board
vice chairman Dr. Charles Bonds.
After several weeks, the board narrowed the choices down to three, he said. “We had quite a few candidates.”

He holds a Level 7 Georgia Leadership certificate.
Holloway has been in his current position for seven years. On his application he said he is responsible for an annual budget of $120 million, and supervises 2,000 employees, 44 of whom report directly to him. He holds a Level 7 Georgia Leadership certificate as well. His current salary is $160,000.
