Margaretta Schools won’t know the fate of its top administrator for at least a few months.

Findlay Schools announced Wednesday it’s extending its search for a new superintendent into the spring, according to a Thursday article in the Findlay Courier.

Margaretta Schools superintendent Ed Kurt is one of the top three candidates for the job. Findlay school board membersinitially planned to announce their selection at the end of December, but they’ve abandoned that timeline with no concrete deadline declared.

Board members plan to interview Kurt and two other Ohio superintendents during a closeddoor meeting today, according to the Findlay Courier article. They are also discussing the job with other unidentified candidates who didn’t apply.

Kurt is requesting $135,000 a year from Findlay Schools, according to his application.

He currently receives $118,000 a year at Margaretta Schools. His contract ends July 2016.

Dean Wittwer, the current Findlay Schools superintendent, is retiring in July. The new superintendent would be hired for the upcoming school year.
