Board not yet releasing candidates' names

The superintendent's search at Campbellsville Independent Schools has been narrowed.


After a three-hour closed meeting Monday night, Board Chairwoman Angie Johnson made the announcement that they had chosen to interview just three of the 17 applicants who applied for the position.

Johnson declined to name the three finalists, saying those names wouldn't be made public until the Board's regularly scheduled meeting on April 13.

Candidate interviews are set for April 14-24 with a new superintendent expected to be announced on May 1.

Applications were screened by a committee, with members of the committee making their recommendation to the Board

Members of the screening committee were teachers Tim Davis and Melanie Adams, Board representative Mitch Overstreet, principal David Petett, parent Diana VanCleave and classified employee Karen Noe.

Board members were to consider the committee's recommendations, though they may choose to hire a candidate other than the committee's choice.

Current Superintendent Diane Woods-Ayers announced her decision in December to not seek a renewal of her contract.
