Ohio County Schools plan to hire a new superintendent next month.

The Intelligencer/Wheeling News-Register reports board of education members approved a time frame Monday for hiring the next superintendent. The final selection will take place at the board's Feb. 22 meeting.

The board also agreed not to retain legal counsel to oversee the superintendent search. They'll instead pay for the assistance of the West Virginia School Boards Association in selecting the school district's next leader.

A town hall meeting on the superintendent's search is scheduled for Friday at Wheeling Park High School. The public will be able to complete an online survey about selecting a superintendent before the meeting.

Susan Nolte, human resources director for Ohio County Schools, said Monday that three candidates had applied for the position so far.
