The Talladega City Board of Education attempted to hold a work session Tuesday morning but was unable to establish a quorum due to the weather.

Board chairwoman Shirley Simmons-Sims said the board would call another work session as soon as possible.

Only Simmons-Sims and board member Juanita Curry McClellan were physically present for the meeting, but board member James Braswell was reached briefly by phone.

Simmons-Sims told Braswell that she wanted to make no changes regarding the search for a superintendent to replace Doug Campbell, who is retiring at the end of the current academic year.

Braswell said he was not aware of any proposed changes. Simmons-Sims said she was referring to the offer made by the Talladega City Council, First National Bank and Citizens Baptist Hospital to provide additional funding that would allow the Alabama Association of School Boards to conduct a nation search.

The board had previously voted to hire AASB to conduct a state-wide search for $6,000. The city, the bank and the hospital had each pledged an additional $6,000 for the nationwide search.

The date for the next work session was not set Tuesday morning.
