PLAINFIELD — John Harper, superintendent of the Plainfield School District, will retire in July 2014.
The Plainfield School Board on Tuesday announced a succession plan.
According to the district, the planning process requires that it begins its search for a new deputy superintendent, who then will assume Harper’s duties upon his retirement.
The school board has invited a pool of candidates to meet with it to be considered for the position.
Once a pool of qualified candidates is formed, the district will create two committees. One will be made up of staff members and parents; the second of administrators.
The committees will interview candidates and share their feedback with the school board.
