Kentucky School Board To Meet In Louisville

The Kentucky Board of Education will meet this week in Louisville.

Spokesperson Lisa Gross says on Wednesday the board will tour the Kentucky School for the Blind and conduct a business session on campus.

“Then they will meet on Thursday and interview candidates for a search firm to look for our new commissioner,” Gross said.

The board is looking for a successor to Commissioner Jon Draud, who stepped down early this year for health reasons.

Gross says the board hopes to have a new leader in place no later than the end of the calendar year.
