There are several meetings and events scheduled for local school districts this week, and most are focused on preparing for the appointment of new superintendents.

Bardstown City Schools is hosting its Superintendent Showcase tonight (Monday, April 16) at 6 p.m. The event will be at the Central Office, 308 N. Fifth Street in Bardstown, and will serve as an opportunity for the community to hear from the district’s four finalists for the superintendent position.

The four finalists for Bardstown City Schools superintendent are Chuck Abell, assistant superintendent of Spencer County Schools; Matthew Baker, director of district-wide programs for Greenup County School District; Ryan Clark, principal of Bardstown Middle School; Anthony Thompson, director of pupil personnel for Russell Independent Schools.

Each candidate will have 20 minutes to respond to a set of questions previously submitted to the district. Audience members are encouraged to share feedback on the showcase with Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA) consultant Phil Eason by emailing phil.eason@gamil.com after the showcase. 

On Tuesday, both Bardstown City Schools and Nelson County Schools will hold their regular monthly meetings.

Bardstown City Schools Board of Education will meet at noon Tuesday in the Central Office and Nelson County Schools will meet at 5 p.m. at its Central Office, 288 Wildcat Lane in Bardstown.

On Thursday, there will be a meet and greet for Nelson County Schools superintendent finalist Travis Hamby at 3:45 p.m. at Old Kentucky Home Middle School. This is a new location from what was previously announced. The meet and greet with Hamby is the final showcase for Nelson County Schools prior to selection of the district’s new superintendent. Hamby will be interviewed by the board Thursday evening. The finalists for Nelson County Schools superintendent are Hamby, superintendent of Trigg County Schools; Wes Bradley, principal of Thomas Nelson High School, and Chuck Abell, assistant superintendent of Spencer County Schools. Abell is a finalist for both districts.

On Friday, Bardstown City Schools Board of Education will have a special-called meeting at noon at the central office to enter into an executive session per KRS 61.810 (1)(f) for consideration of superintendent.
