ANDERSON, Ind. —
"I am one that is very thankful for the impact that Dr. Chow has had on our community these last several years," said school board member Stephanie Moran.
Chow's retirement came "a little sooner than we anticipated," she added, noting that the school board members only just began the process of searching for suitable candidates to replace him.
She estimated the process of vetting candidates would take about four months, even if Chow had stayed until next June.
Now, the district will have to hire an interim superintendent. Even that caretaker position is an important choice, Moran said, making sure the right leadership team is in place because "education is such a high stakes business anymore."
