Kansas City Public Schools may be looking for its next superintendent as Stephen Green named sole finalist for Georgia job

Kansas City Public Schools once again appears to be on the verge of another search for a superintendent.

Stephen Green, the superintendent thought to be the superintendent who would restore stability to the upper echelon of KCPS administration, has been named the sole finalist for the DeKalb County School District near Atlanta, Georgia, according to a report Wednesday morning from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The report notes that the DeKalb district planned a Wednesday evening press conference to formally announce Green as the finalist. Similarly, KCPS is expected to hold a press conference around the same time on Wednesday.

Green is in the middle of a 5-year contract with KCPS. He has been the permanent superintendent for KCPS since 2012. His tenure is one of the more stable terms among KCPS superintendent over the last two decades. If Green takes the new job, he will follow a similar exit of that from John Covington, his predecessor who was hailed as a change agent for the school district before he suddenly left for an education administration position in Michigan.
