FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The Frederick County Board of Education has chosen a firm to search for a new public schools superintendent.
The board voted this week to hire Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates, a large executive search firm serving public school districts, at a cost of $25,000 plus expenses.
Current Superintendent Linda Burgee is retiring on July 1 from the post she has held since 2004.
School board President Brad Young says the board will meet Monday to begin mapping out the selection process.
