MEQUON - Mequon-Thiensville School District Superintendent Demond Means may be leaving the district for a job in Georgia.
Means has been named a sole finalist for the superintendent position for the Clarke County School District in Athens, Georgia. The district has more than 13,000 students.
The Clarke County School District posted on their official Facebook page April 6 that a 14-day mandatory waiting period is currently in effect and they will meet May 4 to vote on a final contract.
In a statement from President of the Mequon-Thiensville School District Stephanie Clark, it was revealed that Means participated in a community forum at the Clarke County School District on April 3.
"The board of education has been kept apprised of Dr. Means' position as a candidate throughout the process," Clark said. "Dr. Means is aware of the high regard the board continues to have for his leadership in MTSD."
Clark credited Means' nine-year tenure as superintendent as "no small part" of the success seen in the Mequon-Thiensville School District and she said it's the district's hope he remains.
“It is our hope that after looking at other opportunities, Dr. Means will find continued professional challenge in our district," Clark said.
Prior to his role as superintendent, Means was the assistant superintendent for the district for three years.
