Public Invited to Meet Warren County Superintendent Finalists
Warren County parents and teachers will have the chance Monday night to hear from the three men vying to be the next schools superintendent. A public forum will start at 7 p.m. at Greenwood High School.
Allen Barber is a Warren Central High School graduate and currently works in school administration in Eagle Point, Oregon. Rob Clayton is a middle school principal in Oldham County, Kentucky, and Dr. Franzy Fleck is a superintendent in Burbank, Illinois.
Community Relations Coordinator Don Sergent says the next chief of schools in Warren County will face a couple of challenges.
"We're a growing district and a very diverse district, so they're probably looking for someone who can handle the issues that arise out of that growth, which a lot of times means building, and we've done a lot of that, and then the diversity dealing with ESL, the English as a Second Language population," explains Sergent.
The Warren County Board of Education will hold interviews with the finalists later this week, and a new superintendent will be named by June 21.
