Carroll County’s school board has scheduled a special meeting on Monday to discuss the search for a new superintendent.
Steve Lockard, the current superintendent, announced he would not seek another term. His contract expires in June. After the announcement, school board President Marsha Herbert said the board will conduct a superintendent search that will involve public input.
Monday’s meeting, which starts at 6 p.m., will not involve public comment, according to a release from the school system.
Before the special meeting, the board will also hold a work session to discuss the fiscal year 2023 operating budget. It starts at 4 p.m. Both meetings will take place inside the board room at CCPS’ central office location in Westminster.
Lockard has served as the system’s superintendent since 2018. He said he is not seeking another term because he is focusing more on family and pursuing other career opportunities. He also noted in an interview he announced his coming departure weeks before his required Feb. 1 deadline to give the board enough time for a search process.
