OXFORD, Miss — A school district in Mississippi is looking for a replacement for its superintendent. 

After nearly 20 years of service, Lafayette County School District Superintendent Dr. Adam Pugh announced his retirement last week. 

The Oxford Eagle reports Pugh said he filed his retirement paperwork last fall but waited to make the final decision. 

Pugh is scheduled to stay in his current post through the remainder of the school year, which ends June 30. 

The process of selecting his successor began this week. The Lafayette County School Board of Trustees has scheduled a work session Thursday to discuss Pugh's departure, effective July 1, and the district's next leader.
