The Community High School District 99 Board of Education will be tasked with finding a replacement for Superintendent Mark McDonald.
McDonald has previously said he will retire when his contract expires June 30, 2016. Jill Browning, director of communications for the district, said the search is in the "very early stages."
Browning said the board will hire a search firm to help select the new superintendent. She said there will also be community input on the next superintendent.
McDonald has been superintendent at the district since 2008.
