Joplin R-8 Board begins reviewing superintendent candidates
The candidates were culled from 45 who applied for the job, which has been held by Norm Ridder on an interim basis since July 1, 2015.
Ridder replaced C. J. Huff, who "retired" at age 45 after seven years on the job, but who is still being paid through the end of this calendar year.
The board expects to hire a superintendent by the first week of December.
