Superintendent Stephen Green is leaving the scene and has decided not to seek renewal of his current contract. The process to find a new a Superintendent will begin immediately. He’ll continue to be Superintendent through next Summer while we find a new Superintendent. I expect to have a new Superintendent by Summer or Fall of next year.
“The DeKalb County Schools community is truly inspirational. I am proud to have the opportunity to help lead our students to achieve educational excellence alongside our exceptional teachers and staff,” said Dr. Green. “I’m excited to see what the future holds for our District and our students – both have limitless potential.”
“We are grateful to Superintendent Green for his service to our district for the last four years. He is a dynamic leader with a strong focus on student achievement leading to higher education, work and life-long learning,” said Dr. Michael Erwin, Chair of the DeKalb County Board of Education.
Superintendent Green apologizes. Mistakes were made. “We value you”, says Green.

Dear DeKalb County School District Employees,
The DeKalb County School District values your commitment to our district, its students and families.
Over the past several years, the Board of Education and I have worked together to invest more money into your compensation package in various ways.
During our most recent efforts to address how you are compensated in a new salary step schedule, we discovered serious errors were made. Specifically, some employees received pay at rates different than what was approved by the Board of Education on January 7, 2019. I apologize for that.
The district has been working diligently to determine what went wrong, and the actions needed to correct it. I have directed a senior management team to develop, without a delay, a recommendation that we will present to the Board to remedy the situation.
We value you. I promise we will get it right. In the interim, we ask for your patience while a solution is being developed. You will be provided regular updates throughout the process through communications channels such as News Flash and the e-portal.
For more information, please contact the DCSD Compensation team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your time and commitment to our student and families.
Dr. R. Stephen Green
DeKalb County School District
