ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – The head of the DeKalb County schools is seeking to fill executive-level jobs in the financially struggling district.

Schools Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson plans to ask the school board to fill several of those jobs during a meeting Monday afternoon in Stone Mountain.

The district is restricting its operations to save $5 million. Officials say Atkinson wants to hire four people to oversee a variety of programs.

The school board recently rejected a layoff plan meant to save $20 million.
