Dothan (WTVY)-- The Dothan School Board will likely extend an offer Monday to one of five candidates seeking to become the city’s next superintendent.

Before offering the job, the board will go into executive session where discussions are shielded from public and media view. Executive sessions are allowed under Alabama law when the good name and character of a person is discussed. Votes must made in public.

The five finalists interviewed earlier this week include:

Dr. Larry Collier, federal programs supervisor for the Decatur, Alabama City Schools.

Martha Compton, director of Florida Panhandle Technical College in Chipley, Florida.

Dr. Phyllis Edwards, former superintendent in Georgia, now retired in Florida.

Dr. Ray Hill, an educational consultant in Stockbridge, Georgia and former superintendent at Macon County Schools in Georgia.

Dr. Alan Miller, assistant professor at Auburn University at Montgomery and former superintendent in Haleyville, Alabama.

Dothan has been without a superintendent since May when Dr. Chuck Ledbetter resigned to take a similar job in Pike Road, Alabama. He served less than two years.
