The final chapter in the Bibb County School District’s search for justice concluded with a judgment entered against former Superintendent Romain Dallemand in the amount of $47,506,992.72 for violations of federal and state racketeering charges; breach of contract; breach of fiduciary duty; and rescission of Dallemand’s February 2013 Severance Agreement. When it filed its Complaint, the Bibb County School District and Board of Education made a promise to the students and taxpayers of Bibb County to diligently pursue justice. The School District and Board are thankful for the outcome.

“Judge Marc Treadwell made the right decision today for justice for our school system and community,” said Board of Education President Lester M. Miller. “Today’s $47 million verdict in favor of our schools
brings to close a difficult time. We have already moved forward and are experiencing a remarkable and nationally recognized transformation in our district. We are excited about our victory in progress and the
bright future for our children, our teachers and community.”

Dallemand was Superintendent of the Bibb County School District from 2011‐2013.
