The Loudoun County School Board is seeking input for its superintendent search. Through an online survey, officials are asking parents and other community members what characteristics they want to see in the new schools chief.

Edgar B. Hatrick III announced last summer that he plans to retire at the end of June. He is the longest-serving superintendent in the region, after more than two decades in the job and nearly a half century with Loudoun schools.

The school board hired the firm Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to help with the search. Survey results are due back by Nov. 22.
