FULTON, Mo. (KMIZ)
Fulton Public Schools is hiring a search firm to help find a new superintendent.
Superintendent Jacque Cowherd plans to retire at the end of this school year. The Fulton School Board formalized an agreement to contract the Missouri Association of Rural Education to aid in searching for a superintendent at its meeting Wednesday evening.
The search firm will cost the district $5,000 and an additional $400 to $700 for focus groups or community meetings, according to the school board agenda.
The search firm will help the district recruit, screen and select a superintendent.
The district wants to have the new superintendent in the job by July 1.
