The Evanston/Skokie District 65 School Board has set up an online survey to receive citizen input on the characteristics and skills desired in the superintendent they plan to hire this year to replace Hardy Murphy, who retired in August.

Board President Tracy Quattrocki has vowed to gain as much citizen input as possible before the board makes its decision, which is expected in be finalized in the spring.
