The Danville Independent Schools Board of Education approved a timeline for the district’s superintendent search on Monday evening.
Dec. 1: The position will be posted for applicants. Later, stakeholders will be surveyed to identify what they’d like to see in a superintendent, from late January into February.
Feb. 28: The deadline for applications is 12 p.m. on this date.
March 3: This date will include the first screening committee work session, during which applications will be reviewed.
The week of April 11: Interviews will take place in closed sessions, not open to the public because they involve personnel matters.
April 18: A formal vote to appoint a superintendent is scheduled to take place at the regular Board of Education meeting on this date, which will be made public.
July 1: This is the scheduled start date for the new superintendent.
This timeline is subject to change.
“I’m excited, as is the rest of the board, that the process of searching for a new superintendent is finally happening,” said Board Chair Steve Becker. “We feel confident about Dec. 1 as the date for posting the job. We’re looking for someone who wants to join the Danville family.”
During Monday’s meeting, there was also a report on House Bill 563 by Kentucky School Board Association Government Relations Director Eric Kennedy.
This legislation, if passed, would allow non-resident students, or students outside of the limits of a Kentucky school district’s geographical boundaries, daily attendance in that district. It has been decided that each Kentucky school board needs to have a policy in place by July 1 on how they will carry out HB 563, whether they will accept non-residential students or not.
