Monday will be the first day on the job for DeKalb County's new interim superintendent of schools. Michael Thurmond was sworn in Saturday, a day after the board voted him into the post.

The former state labor commissioner has many challenges ahead of him as the new chief with the biggest being to bring the district into compliance with the standards set by their accrediting agency, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
