Gov. Deal set to announce new school board members

ATLANTA (AP) — Gov. Nathan Deal is set to announce his selections to replace six suspended DeKalb County Board of Education members.

Deal says a selection panel interviewed about 60 applicants from a field of more than 400 and he plans to announce his selections during a press conference Wednesday morning.

The DeKalb County school district was placed on probation in December by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools following a six-month investigation. In a report, the accreditation agency cited long-term leadership issues including nepotism, fiscal mismanagement, inappropriate micromanagement and intimidation within the district.

DeKalb County is the state's third-largest school district, serving about 99,000 students.
