The Henry County Board of Education is seeking an outstanding educator with leadership skills capable to extend the momentum of excellence in Henry County Schools for its next Superintendent. A screening committee, mandated by Kentucky Revised Statutes, will be formed to screen applicants and make a recommendation of a slate of candidates to the Henry County Board of Education.
The screening committee is made up of various stakeholder groups including one minority member chosen by Henry County Schools’ parents. Kentucky law provides that “‘minority’ means American Indian; Alaskan native; African-American; Hispanic, including persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Central or South American origin; Pacific islander; or other ethnic group under-represented in the school.” The committee member chosen must be ofminority status regardless of the minority status of the child.
There will be a total of six meetings where attendance is very important. Those dates are July 13 and 20, as well as August 3, 17, 18, and 26. Ample consideration should be given to parent nominees who embrace confidentiality and the entire Henry County School District.
Nominations will be accepted and an election will take place to select a minority parent. All Henry County Schools’ parents/guardians are eligible to vote. The nomination deadline is July 2, 2021 at 4 p.m. The voting will be open via electronic vote through Infinite Campus from Tuesday, July 6 to Thursday, July 8 at noon.
If you are a minority parent and would like to be nominated for the search committee, or if you would like to nominate a minority parent, please contact Mary Sharp at the Henry County Board of Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
