NORTH BALTIMORE - The school district is moving forward with the search for its next superintendent.
Board of Education members approved an agreement on Tuesday with the Ohio School Boards Association, at a cost of $6,900 plus expenses, for its superintendent search process.
The process comes following the announcement by Superintendent Marlene North that she plans to retire in June 2014, after 31 years in education.
By contracting with the Ohio School Boards Association, North said, the district will receive assistance throughout the entire process of finding its next superintendent.
Representatives will talk with key groups to discuss community priorities, send mailings to seek out candidates for the position and assist with interview questions, for example.
The search is expected to take four or five months with North's successor to be hired at the May school board meeting. This would allow for some overlap with North's contract and the new superintendent's contract.

PERRYSBURG - The school district has begun accepting applications for an anticipated board vacancy that was made official Tuesday.
Barry Van Hoozen, a 12-year member, was elected to city council last month and thus cannot continue his term on the school board, which runs through 2015. Van Hoozen has announced that his resignation will be effective Dec. 24, which starts the timeline for the board to select his replacement.
After the election, Van Hoozen said he was unsure about when he planned to step down. The timing of that move determined which group would choose a successor, the existing board with two outgoing members or the new board with two new members in January.
Had Van Hoozen resigned sooner, the current board could have selected Van Hoozen's successor, but outgoing school board member Valerie Hovland would not have been eligible, as her own term would not yet have ended.

PEMBERVILLE - Mayor Gordon Bowman told village council Tuesday night that significant progress has been made in dealing with a nuisance property at 810 W. Front St.
"With the help and cooperation of Village Solicitor Mike Marsh and James Hart, attorney for the owner, we have a signed agreement to authorize demolition of the property," Bowman said. "The matter is being sent to the Wood County Planning Office and with their due diligence will be forwarded to the health department, which has funds for demolition. It appears we will have a good resolution of this problem."
Council has heard many citizen complaints about the property over a period of many months. At the Dec. 3 meeting a neighbor told council a shed on her property had become infested with mice and blamed the problem on the property at 810.
A seasonal issue, snow removal from sidewalks, was discussed at length.
Council Member William Long said he has noticed "a fair number of residents" are taking care of their sidewalks. "Some are unable and others just don't care."
