When the deadline for applications for the vacant Washington County superintendent position passed July 17, a total of 21 names had been tossed into the hat. Still, only 19 of those will be considered for the position, according to Mike Oder, superintendent search consultant with the Kentucky School Boards Association. Oder said two of the applicants turned in incomplete information, and will be removed from consideration.
Oder introduced the seven-member screening committee at Monday night’s school board meeting, and the group left after that introduction to begin its first official meeting and begin the process of narrowing those 19 applications to a much smaller number, which is expected to be between three and five applications.
