CINCINNATI (AP) - A large Ohio school district will soon begin the search for a new leader.

Cincinnati Public Schools Superintendent Mary Ronan says she will retire next summer after nine years as the chief administrator. She’s slated to step down Aug. 1.

The school board president praised her for academic progress and innovative strategies in the urban district. After years of declining enrollment, the district has grown 8 percent to 35,000 students in five years.

The board is requesting proposals from executive search firms to guide the selection of a new superintendent. It says there will be a plan for community input during the search.

The board said it wants a search process that will generate a diverse pool of highly qualified candidates, and it hopes to choose a firm by mid-December.
