MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Cobb County's school board has named Chris Ragsdale its sole finalist for interim superintendent.

The school district northwest of Atlanta -- one of the state's largest -- announced the selection on Thursday.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1sKPRFC) that Ragsdale is the Cobb County district's deputy superintendent of operational support.

He was selected from among seven candidates to fill the role left by Superintendent Michael Hinojosa, who announced in February he was resigning effective May 31 to move back home to Dallas, Texas.

Board of Education Chairwoman Kathleen Angelucci said Ragsdale will be officially named interim superintendent April 24. His term will last from May 2014 to May 2015.
