Meanwhile, the superintendent of Anniston City Schools, Darren Douthitt, makes $132,600 a year, with Anniston Middle listed as a "failing school". Douthitt's official response to WIAT 42 news was: "I have a problem with the entire idea and philosophy of schools being called 'failing schools'. Our school is not 'failing,'" Douthitt said.

However, he did not respond to WIAT asking if his salary was justified.

"We hired teachers to take care of oversized classrooms, which is a good problem to have," said Superintendent Darren Douthitt.

...
Douthitt said he wasn't sure exactly why enrollment increased, but suspected it was due to more positive perceptions about the school system.
...
"Kids are coming in from private schools - kids who were going out of district," Douthitt said of the enrollment increase. "I think it's just that people have more confidence in us based on changes we've made in the last few months ... changes in the culture here that people are feeling."
The Anniston Board of Education hired Douthitt in February after the previous superintendent retired.
...
However, though Anniston schools are growing in enrollment, it's not enough to change plans to reduce the number of campuses, Douthitt said.
"It will not impact consolidation plans," Douthitt said.
The board started working last year on ways to consolidate the system to reduce costs due to declining enrollment. The board's current plan is to close Cobb Elementary and Constantine Elementary and spread their students among the remaining schools in 2015 at the earliest. Last month, the board learned it still had to wait on the go-ahead from the U.S. Justice Department before it could move ahead with consolidation.
"We're still playing the waiting game," Douthitt said.
