hopkinsschool 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (7/12/13) – The site-based, decision-making council for Madisonville-North Hopkins High School has set the selection criteria for finding the school's next head administrator.
 
The council met Thursday, July 11 at the Hopkins County School central office to discuss and approve its survey questions for interviews. The council also reviewed principal candidate applications in closed session. It did not take any action upon return to open session, according to Steve Gilliam, Hopkins County School Assistant Superintendent.
 
A replacement is being sought for long-time MNHHS Principal DeDe Ashby, who accepted an assistant superintendent position with the Hopkins County Board of Education earlier this year. Ashby came on after Assistant Superintendent Linda Zellich vacated her position to accept the superintendent's job after the retirement of James L. Stevens.
 
The next step for the council will be interviewing candidates, which will not be open to the public. The next public meeting will be to announce the selection, said Gilliam.
 
Site-based councils are typically comprised of three teachers, two parents and the school principal.
