The Maryland State Board of Education hired Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to lead the search for the next state school superintendent. The search firm is working under a $59,000 contract.

The search firm, which was used by Montgomery, Frederick, Carroll and Prince George's county school boards for recent searches for local school superintendents, will begin its work immediately. The Rosemont, Illlinois based firm also recently did the search for a new superintendent for Colorado.

Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates has led approximately 800 searches over the past 20 years, according to a press release by the department.

The search comes after the retirement of Nancy S. Grasmick who had been in the position for 20 years and announced earlier this year that she would be leaving the job. The board appointed Bernard Sadusky, a former Queen Anne's County superintendent who worked in the department for several years, to be an interim.
