OPS Assistant Superintendent Named Kentucky Director of the Year

owensboro public schoolsOWENSBORO, Ky. (5/14/13) – David Johnson, Owensboro Public Schools’ Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Personnel, Maintenance and Transportation, has been selected as the 2013 Kentucky Director of Pupil Personnel (DPP) of the Year. He will be recognized during the Kentucky Directors of Pupil Personnel (KDPP) Fall Institute that will be held Sept. 12-14 in Lexington.

Johnson has worked with OPS students in overseeing pupil personnel for 12 years. In his position, he works with schools on attendance and student academic and discipline issues. He works with families, court designated workers, judges, child protective services, and other community resources to provide services to students when needed. His goal is always to provide the best possible education for the child and to remove barriers to their learning.

Superintendent Larry Vick, who nominated Johnson said, “David Johnson encourages students to have goals and dreams that will help them see beyond the moment. His ultimate goal is to help, not to punish a student. He changes lives for the better. When asked what his office does, David says ‘We help people.’ It is that attitude that carries through to every part of David’s responsibilities be it with students or with transportation and maintenance staff.”

An Owensboro High School graduate, Johnson began his teaching career at OHS in 1989 as a Social Studies teacher. In 1996, he became the district’s high school curriculum specialist. In 2001, he became Director of Pupil Personnel and was named an Assistant Superintendent in 2011. He also served as an Owensboro City Commissioner from 2004-2012. His community involvement includes services to a number of local and state organizations. He was President of the Kentucky DPP organization in 2010-11.
