Georgia school board considers Dallemand's counter-offer

A possible contract agreement between Rochester schools Superintendent Romain Dallemand and the Bibb County School district doesn't appear likely until late next week at the earliest, according to Macon, Ga., media reports.

Dallemand has made a counter-offer to the Georgia school district's initial offer, a proposal that the Bibb County Board of Education discussed in a closed session Monday.

"We don't have terms yet that we can agree to," board president Gary Bechtel told the Macon Telegraph newspaper. "We're getting to the point that we can agree on terms."

The Bibb County school district has offered Dallemand a three-year contract, according to WMAZ-TV in Macon.

Bechtel has previously said Dallemand will be offered a contract similar to that previous Superintendent Sharon Patterson, $195,000 in base pay plus benefits, the Telegraph reported.


Dallemand's current salary is $171,600. The Rochester school district has 16,427 students, and the Bibb County school district serves about 25,000 students.

The Bibb County board will meet Monday and will likely present Dallemand's attorney with a new offer on Dec. 7, Bechtel told the Telegraph. He said he hopes a deal can be reached by the end of next week and that Dallemand can start work early next year.

The Bibb County School Board selected Dallemand as its next superintendent on Nov. 9. The Post-Bulletin could not reach Bechtel for comment.
