New QPS superintendent to start ahead of schedule


A new era begins for Quincy Public Schools.

Steve Cobb will begin his duties as the new superintendent of Quincy Public Schools on April 15th, instead of the original planned date of July 1st.

The Quincy School Board approved an amended contract to allow Cobb to start sooner. Joel Murphy, the district's business manager, will relinquish his role as interim superintendent and return full-time to his primary job in the business office. Rich Royalty, who has been serving as interim business manager, will return to retirement.

Murphy said Cobb has been released early from his contract with the Fort Wayne, Ind., School District.
