More than a dozen hopefuls have applied for the Gasconade County R-1 School District superintendent’s post and more a expected to put their hats in the ring as the application period comes to a close, according to Brent Underwood, who is managing the search process again for the R-1 Board of Directors.

Underwood Thursday night updated the board on the status of the search, noting that retiring Superintendent Tracey Hankins was one of about 20 applicants when the position was filled three years ago. Hankins is retiring at the end of this school year, having completed three decades in public education as a teacher and an administrator.
