Board of Education General 03 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (3/22/13) – The Hopkins County Board of Education has started the process of selecting the next superintendent of the Hopkins County Public Schools. Using the services of Mr. Phil Eason, a consultant with the Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA) the district is establishing the superintendent screening committee.
 
According to Eason, establishing a superintendent screening committee is the first step in the process and is an extremely important one at that.
 
“Kentucky Revised Statute 160.352 is very clear on how a screening committee shall be established, and who will serve on it,” said Eason. “This six member committee will receive all the applications and start the screening process. So by design, this statute essentially offers everyone in the School District an opportunity to be represented in the process.”
 
Eason said the committee is comprised of a cross section of the stakeholders of the district and will include the following individuals: two teachers, elected by the teachers; one board of education member, appointed by the board chairman; one principal, elected by the principals of the district; one parent, elected by the presidents of the parent-teacher organizations of the school district; and one classified employee, elected by the classified employees of the school district.
 
“Prior to appointing a new superintendent, the Board of Education will consider the finalists recommended by the screening committee,” said Eason. “However, the board is not required to appoint a superintendent from the committee’s recommended candidates. Ultimately, the board has the legal authority and responsibility to appoint the superintendent.”
 
The Board of Education’s goal is to appoint a superintendent by May 17, 2013 with duties to begin July 1, 2013. If anyone in the community has any questions or would like to provide input as to the qualities of the next superintendent contact Phil Eason at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
