USD 245 South Coffey County is closing down the application window for a new superintendent Thursday.
Current superintendent Mike Kastle is retiring June 30 after a decade leading the district. He says the USD 245 board is looking for somebody with a solid financial background. The board also wants somebody who is "committed" to a small district.
The new superintendent will also serve as a part-time principal.
A selection committee will make its recommendation on finalists Monday night, with interviews possibly starting by Jan. 23. For more information, call 620-964-2212 or go online to www.usd245ks.org.
