Independence School District Superintendent Retiring

The Independence School District will be looking for a new superintendent.

Jean Peterson is retiring at the end of the school year effective June 30th. She made the announcement at last month’s school board meeting. Peterson has served as the Independence School District Superintendent since 2010.

The Independence School Board held a special meeting Wednesday night to begin discussions on how to move forward. They heard presentations from two search firms and have chosen Grundmeyer Leader Search to help the district find their next superintendent.
