The deadline to apply to become the next superintendent of the Des Moines School District has arrived. Monday was the last day superintendent hopefuls could turn in their applications.
Now a search firm will review the applicants and report to the school board in a special closed session on February 21.
The district hopes to have the new superintendent hired in time for the 2013-2014 school year.
The position was left empty when Nancy Sebring resigned in May after the media discovered sexually-explicit e-mails on her district account.
