Monday, June 30th was supposed to be Steve Smith's last day on the job as Bibb County Schools interim superintendent. But he is continuing through the end of the calendar year because a permanent leader has not been found. Last June, Smith and his wife put retirement plans on hold so that he could help stabilize the school system after the departure of former superintendent Romain Dallemand. But the plan was to do the job for just 13 months. Of the extension, Smith says his wife is "not fond of the idea."
The State Professional Standards Commission will hear two complaints against Bibb County School Superintendent Romain Dallemand. State officials will not say who filed the complaints. The PSC gets around 100 complaints a month, and not all are investigated.
