The Morris Area Board of Education is seeking input from the public, district staff and parents as it searches for a new superintendent.

Superintendent Rick Lahn will retire on June 30.

A news release from the school board said the information received from the public, staff and parents will be used to shape the interview questions for candidates.

The school board will have paper and online surveys for the public, district staff and parents to complete.
