Former Decatur superintendent no longer a finalist for job in former district

Superintendent Phyllis Edwards

Former City Schools of Decatur superintendent Phyllis Edwards has withdrawn her name from a pool of finalists vying to be the next superintendent of Flagler County Schools in Florida.

Edwards emerged as one of five finalists for the job in the district where she previously served as assistant superintendent before leaving in 2003 to take over City Schools of Decatur. According to the Palm Coast Observer, Edwards did not give a reason for withdrawing her name from consideration.

When she announced her resignation as CSD’s superintendent in 2015, Edwards said she intended to move back to Florida. Along the way, she considered working for Valarie Wilson, the Georgia School Boards Association’s Executive Director. Wilson served as the Decatur School Board chair from 2005 to 2011.

Edwards was replaced by current CSD Superintendent David Dude.
