The search for a new superintendent of Arab City Schools should begin relatively soon.

John Mullins announced his retirement Thursday.

“I’ve already spoken with our attorney, Clint Maze, about the process,” said Arab Board of Education president Wayne Trimble. “We’re going to meet soon, formulate a plan and go from there. Right now we’re just trying to put things together.”

Trimble said the objective was simple.

“We just want to find a good superintendent as quickly as possible that will do a good job for our kids,” he said.

Mullins unexpectedly requested that the board approve his retirement and appoint assistant superintendent Stacie Pace as the acting superintendent, which the board did.
