HAZARD – The Perry County Board of Education will sit for a special called meeting next week to discuss and possibly take action on the position of interim superintendent for the school district.
The board is expected to name a superintendent on an interim basis before launching a search for a permanent replacement for current Superintendent John Paul Amis, who announced his retirement during a board meeting last week. Amis’s retirement will take effect Nov. 1.
The board will meet at the district’s central office in Hazard on Monday, Oct. 8 at 10 a.m. The only items on the agenda include an executive session, after which the board will take action on hiring an interim superintendent if needed.
