Next the board approved the text for the advertisement for the new superintendent. Following this the board moved to approve the Pendleton County Schools Superintendent Search Survey. It will be available on line at the Pendleton County Schools website. All citizens are encouraged to take this short survey. All results are confidential and will be forwarded directly to the Kentucky School Board Association (KSBA) for review by Don Martin, the search committee consultant.
Lastly the board approved the number of applicants, three to five, that the search committee will recommend to the board for the superintendent’s position.
