What was at stake?

Issues in the district

Superintendent resignation

In August 2014, Baldwin County Public Schools Superintendent Alan Lee announced his resignation, just two weeks before the start of the 2014-2015 school year. He cited changes in the members of the school board as the reason for stepping down. Lee stated that he's unsure if he and the board of education will share the same vision in the future. The seven-member board has seen three new members since Lee began as superintendent in 2010 and will likely see two more new members following the election in November 2014. Board president Norman Moore and vice president Angie Swiger have expressed that they do not see the board's vision changing with the new members and are happy with the district's progress. Lee's resignation was effective on November 1, 2014.[3]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7]
