SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The man who’s served as superintendent of Utah public schools since 2012 has announced he’ll retire as soon as the state board of education can find his replacement.

The Utah State Board of Education announced Friday that Superintendent Martell Menlove would be stepping down. He says he doesn’t have any immediate plans for the future, but hopes to continue construction work on a cabin and wants to spend more time with his family.

Chairman David L. Crandall says the state board will start seeking Menlove’s successor right away, with first steps schedule for an April 4 board meeting.

Menlove began his career in education in 1976 as an elementary school teacher in Jordan School District. He was named deputy state superintendent in 2009, and superintendent in 2012.
