West Virginia Board of Education now accepting applications for superintendent

The West Virginia Board of Education is now accepting applications for the state superintendent of schools.

The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. on March 10, according to a news release from the Board of Education.

Current Superintendent Michael Martirano announced his resignation on Sept. 20, 2016, saying he wanted to be closer to his family in Maryland. Martirano's resignation is effective on June 30.

Board of Education President Thomas Campbell had previously suggested waiting for feedback from Gov. Jim Justice on the hire.

Campbell appointed board members Miller Hall, Chuck Hatfield, David Perry and Scott Rotruck as part of the search committee.

A description of the job and information on where applications can be sent can be found on the board's website.
