Board sets target superintendent hire date

BY KATHLEEN FOX kfox@paducahsun.com

The screening committee for people seeking to become the next superintendent of Paducah schools has been chosen.

The superintendent screening council, which advises the board of education, is composed of one board member, one administrator, two certified teachers, one classified employee and one parent. The group will vet candidates according to their written applications, conduct background and reference checks, then make recommendations to the board for in-person interviews, according to board secretary Lisa Mitchell.

She said nominations were open until Dec. 11 with elections for certified and classified representatives being held the week of Jan. 2-9. The administrative representative is elected by district principals, and the parent representative is selected by the district parent-teacher organization (PTO) presidents.

The selected members include Janice Howard, school board; Art Davis, Paducah Tilghman principal; Jonathan Smith and Alan Tucker, certified teachers at Paducah Tilghman; Lakilia Bedeau, classified staff member, and Chris Black, parent representative.

The committee will begin reviewing applications from the Kentucky School Boards Association in early March. The board will then interview selected candidates with the goal of naming a superintendent by March 31. Superintendent Randy Greene submitted his resignation during the November school board meeting, effective when his contract ends June 30.

In other meeting business Friday:

n After eight years as the board chairwoman, Danette Humphrey nominated Carl LeBuhn as the new chairman beginning immediately. Felix Akojie was nominated to the vice chairman position that LeBuhn had held.

n The board approved the 2014-2015 draft budget and an offer of assistance in the amount of $39,443 from the School Facilities Construction Commission. Greene said the amount will allow the district to bond up to $500,000 in the next one to three years if needed for building repairs.

n The board also accepted an amendment to the school calendar that changes Monday, Feb. 17,  from a professional development day to a regular school day to negate the loss of instructional time from winter weather. Additional future alterations to non-instructional school days are expected for staff members, Greene said.
