The first step in employing the next superintendent has been completed with the organization of the superintendent screening committee. While the committee has no binding authority on the selection of the superintendent on the school board, typically, the superintendent is selected from among the committee’s recommendations. The committee is required by state statute (KRS 160.352) which defines the composure of the committee members.
The superintendent screening committee is
Board member – Kevin O’Neill
Certified – Theresa Rutherford, Jay Simmons
Classified – Rachel Bowles
Parent – Amy Willis
Principal – Jessica Thomas
The board attorney, Bryan Wilson, will meet with the committee to provide them direction and organization by the end of February. Applications for superintendent are being accepted through March 2. After that time, Mr. Wilson will make the applications available to the committee to begin screening. Near the end of March or first of April the committee will present 3 to 5 recommendations for the board to interview. A target date for selecting the new superintendent is May 10.
