Phenix City schools introduces new interim superintendent

Posted: Updated:
PHENIX CITY, Ala. -

The Phenix City School Board had its first informal meeting since former superintendent, Dr. Larry DiChiara, had his contract bought out. Interim superintendent Dr. Rodney Hinton led the meet and greet session but he is no stranger to Phenix City schools. He was a teacher, principal and administrator in the district before retiring.

At the meeting, Dr. Hinton laid out his plan for the school district.

"So we're going to focus on meeting the needs of these students, maximizing potential, getting better every day. In that process we'll meet the rest of our stakeholders needs too," said Dr. Hinton.

He will fill the position until the end of the school year. There is still little information about why Dr. DiChiara's contract was bought out a little more than a week ago but the board will start looking to permanently fill the position immediately.
