School Superintendent Steps Down

Dublin, GA: (Sep-24-07) Montgomery County School Superintendent Dale Clark reached a settlement with school authorities as she agreed to step down from her position. Clark, a native of Uvalda, came to the Montgomery County school system after years of teaching and counseling in several surrounding counties. Clark accepted the position of Montgomery County's superintendent in June 2001, taking the position after the retirement of Superintendent Jim Paul Poole. Sources claimed that outraged citizens were displeased with the board's decision that led to Clark's resignation.

As part of the settlement, Clark has approximately 22 months left on her employment contract. The parties have negotiated and agreed to a mid-term employment contract where she will resign as school superintendent as of 9 a.m. on October 1, 2007. Clark will then be a consultant for the school district and will receive her current annual salary of $111,000 through September of 2008. Sources stated that during the last six years as superintendent, Clark has withstood many obstacles that often go along with dealing with a small school system and a county with little resources. Despite the issues, there have been some positive steps taken, such as the building of a new elementary school, improvements at the Montgomery County High School football stadium and the plans being laid for a new high school.
