At its meeting on March 19, the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) authorized the KBE Chair Sharon Porter Robinson to enter into contract negotiations with the preferred candidate for the next commissioner of education. The proposed negotiated contract will be presented to the full board for approval at a future special called meeting.

If the contract is approved, the name of the selected candidate will be announced. The KBE intends to name a new commissioner and submit that individual to the Kentucky Senate for confirmation by the end of March.
