Bill to give superintendents more hiring flexibility clears Senate vote

On Thursday, Kentucky’s State Senate passed House Bill 184 unanimously, a Kentucky Chamber supported measure giving the superintendent in Jefferson County more flexibility in principal hiring.

The bill is sponsored by Representative Jeff Donohue and was presented to the Senate by Senate Majority Caucus Chair Dan Seum.

HB 184 creates a greater role for the superintendent in selecting and placing principals by allowing them to recommend a candidate to the site-based selection committee in closed session. This gives the Jefferson County Superintendent an additional tool in recruiting talented and qualified individuals to apply to take charge of schools where change and strong leadership are needed the most.

HB 184 passed by a vote of 36-0. It previously passed the House where it heads back for concurrence.
