The second-largest school district in Georgia is expected to hold a press conference Monday to introduce the man set to become its new leader.
Cobb County will get a chance to meet Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Michael Hinojosa during a 4:30 p.m. ET event.
School board members announced Thursday that Hinojosa is the lone finalist for the top job in Cobb County.
Hinojosa told The Marietta Daily Journal that he is excited by the opportunity.
He promised DISD last fall that he would not seek out other job opportunities after he was passed over for a superintendent job in Nevada. But he told reporters in Dallas last week that his son and daughter-in-law are expecting Hinojosa's first grandchild.
"Things do change, and certainly this is a very unique opportunity," Hinojosa said Thursday night.
Hinojosa has been superintendent in Dallas for the last five years and makes $328,000 annually. Cobb officials say his salary in Georgia will be less than $250,000.
The DISD has nearly 160,000 students, while Cobb has about 106,000.
