COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Changes are coming for the Columbus Municipal School District after the school board decides to not renew Superintendent Dr. Hickman’s contract.

The board voted three to two this morning, November 13, to not renew his contract which expires June of next year.

This means, the district will be looking to fill that spot for the 2018-2019 academic year.

This isn’t the first time Dr. Hickman’s position has been up in the air.

The board says after further review of the district academically, among other reasons, they’ve decided to try something new.

Dr. Hickman remains positive about the board’s decision.

“My job is to serve the children of the district and the community, and I believe I’ve done my job well,” says Superintendent Dr. Philip Hickman.

Though his contract isn’t being renewed, Dr. Hickman is still able to reapply for the position.

Coming up tonight at six we’ll hear from a parent who’s not happy with the decision as well as what’s next for board members.

    this is the same board that lost hundreds of thousands of dollars on books the new superintendent didn’t want?
