Carter County Times
With the acceptance of Dr. Dotson’s retirement effective September 1, the Carter County Board of Education has started the process of selecting a new superintendent. One of the first steps in this process is the establishment of a Superintendent Search Committee. By law (KRS 160.352) the committee shall be comprised of: two teachers, elected by the teachers; one board member, appointed by the board chairperson; one principal, elected by the principals; one parent, elected by the presidents of the parent-teacher organizations in the district; and one classified employee, elected by the classified employees.
The presidents of the parent-teacher organizations have met with the Kentucky School Boards Association Superintendent Search consultant and are accepting self-nominations for the parent seat on the committee. A link to the self-nomination form, which includes more specific information, is located on the district website at http://www.cartercountyschools.org. Parent self-nominations will be accepted August 9 – August 16.
On August 17 the board will hold a special meeting and public forum at West Carter Middle School, at 6 p.m. to hear comments related to the search criteria
