The Kirksville R-III School Board plans to announce today who the next superintendent will be. They held a special session meeting earlier this week. The School Board is expected to sign off on the final contract paperwork with the new superintendent hire after weeks of interviews with at least five final candidates. The Board met Monday to finalize contract negotiations and is slated to sign the final contract today, according to retiring Superintendent Patrick Williams. Williams said the Board is scheduled to meet with the new hire on campus for tours and introductions and will announce the decision once the contract is signed.
