If they haven't decided by now, they need to look alittle farther. I'm really tired of the under-the-table deals. Fact is they don't have a decent applicate or there would have been a decision. I just hope the good ole boys don't win, it's time someone stood up to them. We ought to remember this when election time comes around.

All the out of district applicants withdrew their names. Rather strange wouldn't you say or maybe they found out what was going on and didn't want to be used in the good ole boy game being played. Then from out of no where an applicant from Henry County Tn. shows up unannounced to most. Would be interesting to find out why the out of district canidates all dropped out.

It would be interesting. Any school board members willing to make a comment?

Ok it will most likely go to Stephanie Sullivan if I had to predict. RB is a good guy but not popular with the board due to his conservative values and he is a pastor and Graves is getting away from its Christian roots. I am not sure but the Harrison girl is not from here and if that is the case it would not matter how good she is they will never vote for her. So yes I think Stephanie is the one. If Jennifer wanted it it would be her job no doubt.

Being a pastor doesn't make him qualified for the job. If you don't have communication/people skills, your "smarts" is of little value. It's shame he didn't learn from his principal position. Harrison is local, she is an assistant superintendent now. When improper relationships happen, it takes away my respect for the candidates as well and doesn't look great for the leaders who are supposed to be respresenting the district.

Kim Harrison is one of the three current assistant superintendents. I just hope the board chooses the person that will be best for our kids and not just because of politics.

If a interim is named and the status quo continues
rest assured politics is being played. A superintendant, three asst. supt., and 1.5 million over budget. No out of district canidates applying maybe it is worse than it appears or maybe the three out of district canidates were set up as decoys. I know the salary isn't the highest in the state but can you imagine what it would be like to come in out of district and have 3 assistants under you who were mad because they didn't get the job. How can this mess ever be straighten up?

Jason Riley was also an applicant, but didn't get a second chance interview. I guess he just didn't throw a big fit. You know how the saying goes, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Sullivan gets my vote. But that is irrelevant.

Any news from the board meeting last night. Anybody thought that maybe they are holding off on the superintendent position until all the principal jobs are filled? Again another tactic to get family members in higher positions!

I hope we get someone who will crack down on some of the behaviors on display by some kids in the high school and Junior high. The lack of overall respect for anything and how some teachers turn a blind eye is wrong. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO WANTING TO BE A ROLE MODEL FOR KIDS? We also need to get our act together in terms of academics.

Is the public allowed to attend any of the board meetings about this decision? If so, when are the meetings?

No open meetings, it's the board members decision. That is where the good ole boys come in. The only way to make our voices heard is to contact the members. This is what this topic is all about, hopefully spreading the importance of your voice to the school board members. We need to get involved and let them know we are watching. They are accountable for finding the best for our children and community and I appreciate the ones that are holding fast for change.

Anyone willing to give legal definition to KRS 160.352 regarding the screening committees authority.

The Graves County Superintendant hiring process doesn't seem to be consistant with with the KRS statute. What is the purpose/duties of the KRS 160.352 Screening Committee?
