EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene School District 4J plans to hold a virtual board meeting Wednesday to discuss the interim superintendent hiring process. The board is slated to declare the superintendent position vacancy and approve a process for appointing a candidate this spring. 

Last month, Superintendent Gustavo Balderas announced his decision to leave 4J and take a superintendent position for the Edmonds School District in Washington.

4J leaders said they are in search of an interim superintendent for the 2020-2021 school year. Officials said finding a permanent replacement at this time could be difficult because the best time of the year to hire is over winter break. 

Wednesday's board meeting to discuss the hiring process begins at 6 p.m. and is open to the public through on a livestream on the district's website. The public can send in comments via email to board@4j.lane.edu with the subject line "Public Comment."
