    The Grant County Board of Education will have a new superintendent when the 2011-2012 school year starts, as superintendent Michael Hibbett announced his retirement at the board meeting Nov. 11.

    Hibbett said that he felt now was a good time to make the announcement to give the board of education time to find his replacement.

    “In the school business, there is a long drawn out process to find a new superintendent,” he said.
    Hibbett, however, said he didn’t want to make his announcement too early, but felt that being in the second nine-week period of the school year was the right time.
