A Siouxland school district is beginning the search for a new superintendent.

The Norfolk Nebraska Public School Board accepted the retirement of current superintendent Dr. Marlene Uhing at its meeting Monday night. Uhing will leave the school district June 30th of 2013.

Uhing said that she decided to retire for personal and family reasons. She also said that she wanted to announce her retirement early enough to allow for a thorough search for her replacement. Board members said they were shocked by the announcement, but appreciative of Uhing's efforts in getting the district's finances under control.

Uhing came to Norfolk in 2007 after serving as Superintendent in Seward, Nebraska. The Board had just approved a contract extension through 2014 for Uhing last December.

Board members say they will begin the search for Uhing's replacement immediately.
