The state school board voted Friday to look into hiring a search firm to help find the state's next superintendent.
The board voted unanimously to put out a request for proposals for companies to help it recruit candidates for the job. Dave Crandall, board chairman, said he expects hiring such a company may cost tens of thousands of dollars. The board hopes to use a search firm in addition to putting out its own announcement.
"We wanted to cast a broader net and really actually go after individuals who may not actively be seeking a new job," Crandall said.
