Moehrle says they've already received a few applications, and hope to identify a candidate in the coming weeks.

The committee with do their own research on the candidates who applied. The goal then would be for the committee to come up with the ideal candidate who the board will get to meet and ask questions.

He says they plan to conduct a formal search for the district's next superintendent sometime this fall, with hopes of that candidate hired in time to start the 2024-25 school year.

Current superintendent Jeff Ridlehoover announced he will be leaving the district following this school year to become the superintendent of Rockford Area Schools.
