Former assistant principal Chris Glass’ interim position up at the end of June

By The Staff

The district has begun its search for a permanent principal at the high school and has tentatively set a start date for the new principal for July 1, according to Superintendent Sheila Mitchell.
The Anderson County High School’s site-based decision making council met last Thursday afternoon during a special-called meeting to discuss the principal selection process, and decided to move forward to find someone to fill a permanent principal position.
Former assistant high school principal Chris Glass was appointed as the interim ACHS principal in late June 2013 after Ronnie Fields resigned to take the position of director of district-wide programs and operations.
Glass’ appointment as interim principal is scheduled to last 12 months, and will remain in that role until June 30, 2014, regardless of who is selected, Mitchell said.
Mitchell said she could not comment on whether or not Glass is being considered among applicants for the permanent principal position as she had not had a chance to review applications.
 The principal vacancy was declared on Feb. 25, and the application process will close on March 28, according to Mitchell.
A survey asking students, staff and parents for input on the high school principal selection process will be on the district’s website at http://www.anderson.k12.ky.us/ starting March 10 through March 14.
