The state has formed a committee, hired a company and created an online survey in its search for the next school superintendent. It lists 33 potential qualities in a superintendent, and asks Ohioans to choose 10.

The Ohio Board of Education is in charge of picking the next superintendent. Although some members of the board have suggested that Gov. John Kasich will have influence given that several members of the search committee are his appointees. He also appoints eight of 19 school board members.

The former superintendent, Richard Ross, resigned at the end of last month. The board could select a new superintendent by March.
