The Springfield School Board will interview three prospective executive search firms during a special meeting this afternoon (10/15).

The board will vote during its regular meeting tonight on which firm will lead the search for Superintendent Norm Ridder’s replacement.

Dr. Ridder announced earlier this year that the 2013-2014 school year would be his last at the helm of the Springfield Public School district.

Once a search firm has been selected, a timeline for the superintendent search will be developed.  School Board President Kris Kallen has said the board hopes to begin reviewing applicants for the superintendent’s job in December.
