Ragsdale said he was awarded a temporary waiver from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, allowing him to be hired as superintendent in February, provided he was enrolled in a master’s degree program.
Ragsdale said Wednesday he was proud to be able to walk across stage and receive his degree, which he earned while simultaneously leading the Cobb School District.
“Like all graduates, it feels awesome to be able to say you have finally completed the journey and go on to the next phase,” he said.
Ragsdale said the requirement to have a master’s degree to become superintendent was temporarily waived by the commission since he was actively working toward the degree.
