The Kings Board of Education has been working to search for the next leader of the Kings Local School District. 
Their first step in the process was partnering with the Warren County Educational Service Center to facilitate the search process. The Board evaluated candidates based on the feedback received from stakeholder groups that included the community, parents, and staff. They also utilized a staff survey that asked for characteristics that they felt were most important for the next superintendent. 
A total of 24 individuals applied for the Superintendent position. The Board evaluated the candidates based on the feedback they received and the candidate’s experience and qualifications. The Board has completed the first round of interviews and will be conducting the second round of interviews with two candidates on Wednesday, May 12.
