KALKASKA — Less than two months after its current superintendent announced his resignation, the Kalkaska Public Schools Board of Education could be well on its way to finding a successor.

Outgoing Supt. Terry Starr, the top administrator at KPS since 2018, announced in mid-April he would not be seeking an extension to his current three-year contract, effectively resigning from the position as of June 30. Starr is set to begin his role as the new superintendent at Shepherd Public Schools on July 1.
