The Mercer County District 404 Board of Education has meetings set for tonight and Friday, at 6 p.m. both days, to interview superintendent candidates.
Former Superintendent Alan Boucher left District 404 on Oct. 1 to become superintendent of schools at Sherrard District 200. Dr. Jane Eichman is currently serving as interim superintendent of the Mercer County district.
The Illinois Association of School Board has been assisting District 404 in its search. The deadline for applications was Nov. 30, 2015.
The Mercer County Board is right on track, holding interviews as planned in January. The board hopes to hire a new superintendent in February, with that person taking over July 1.
