The Indianapolis Public Schools Board of School Commissioners has started the search for an interim superintendent.

The search comes after Dr. Eugene White announced he would be retiring as superintendent on April 5. The school district is now seeking candidates interested in serving as interim superintendent beginning on or around White’s departure date. A separate search for a permanent superintendent will be conducted.

If the candidate does not possess a current Indiana superintendent’s license, the candidate will work with the school board and the Indiana Department of Education to secure a temporary license.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume outlining experience, qualifications, and names and contact information of three or more current references. The materials should be sent to Sharon Alvey, Board Secretary, at alveys@ips.k12.in.us or mailed to the Board of School Commissioners, Indianapolis Public Schools, 120 E. Walnut St., Indianapolis, 46204. The closing date to receive applications is before 5:00 P.M. EST on February 6, 2013.
