School Board accepting parent nominations for superintendent search

Staff Report
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
