Georgia's largest school district chooses new superintendent

SUWANEE, Ga. (AP) — Georgia’s largest school district is bringing one of its own home to take over after board members ousted a longtime leader. The Gwinnett County Board of Education voted 5-0 Thursday to name Calvin Watts as its sole finalist to become superintendent. Watts has been superintendent of the Kent, Washington, school district since 2015. Before that, Watts worked for 13 years in Gwinnett County. The board must wait 14 days before it can confirm its choice of Watts. He would be Gwinnett County's first Black superintendent. Watts would follow 25-year superintendent Alvin Wilbanks. Board members voted in March to fire Wilbanks a year earlier than he had planned to retire.
