The Frankfort Independent Board of Education is preparing for the arduous task of finding a new superintendent.
After 12 years as superintendent, Mike Oder announced at last month's meeting that he will retire June 30. The board hopes to have the new superintendent selected by June 1.
Board members approved a contract at Thursday night's meeting with the Kentucky School Boards Association to help assist with the search for a new superintendent.
State guidelines require the committee be comprised of a school board member, a principal, two teachers, one classified employee, one parent and one minority representative. All but the minority member position on the screening committee have been filled.
Any parent who is a minority may be nominated or self-nominated through April 25. All parents may then vote on those nominated at any of the offices at Second Street School, Frankfort High or the board office through Thursday, May 1.
