KEARNEY — The Kearney School Board launched its search for its next superintendent by contracting with EdCounsel, a Missouri firm that conducts searches on behalf of school boards, to find qualified candidates.

The school board plans to interviewing candidates in coming months and anticipates hiring the next superintendent in December. The new school district leader is expected to start July 1, 2020.

The search for a new superintendent came after last month's retirement announcement from Bill Nicely, who has served as the district's superintendent for the past 11 years.
