The Utah State Board of Education approved the following announcement of the opening for Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction on May 9, 2014.
The Board also approved sending out a request for proposals (RFP) seeking an executive recruiting firm to provide a minimum of six qualified and interested candidates for the position. The RFP will be announced later this month, and the Board will still need to approve a contract.
State Superintendent Martell Menlove announced in March that he would retire, but agreed to remain on the job while the Board sought a replacement. The Board hopes to make a hiring decision in August.
