ASHLAND, Miss. (AP) - Benton County School District Superintendent Jack Gadd is not seeking re-election this year.

Gadd, a former state legislator, will complete his first four-year term leading the school district in January. He said he decided two weeks ago it was time to do something different.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1D5XpJ7 ) that Gadd is the only Northeast Mississippi school superintendent in an elected position not seeking re-election.

Candidates still have until Feb. 27 to file qualifying papers.

Eleven of Northeast Mississippi’s 16 counties have elected superintendents of education.

The party primary elections will be held Aug. 4, and the general election is Nov. 3.

Other counties in the region with elected superintendents are Alcorn, Calhoun, Chickasaw, Itawamba, Lee, Marshall, Monroe, Pontotoc, Prentiss and Union.
