For the third time, a ruling has come down from the state supporting the Bowling Green city school district in their ongoing fight with the Warren County school district over the number of county students allowed to attend city schools with state funding. The Kentucky Board of Education voted Tuesday to uphold Education Commissioner Terry Holliday's previous ruling.
But, in making their ruling, the Board ordered both districts to do more negotiating over the number of students that would be acceptable to both districts with a report on their progress due back to the Board in December.
Holliday's decision that the Board upheld ruled that Bowling Green could enroll 750 Warren County students this school year.
The Warren County Public School system has a new superintendent.
The Warren County Board of Education Tuesday night named Rob Clayton to succeed the retiring Tim Murley. Clayton has been the principal of South Oldham Middle School in Crestwood, KY for the past seven years. He's been in education for 20 years including the past 13 in administration.
Clayton says his three main goals are insuring the safety of students, assuring all students learn at a high level and that all graduates are ready for college or a career.
Clayton was one of three finalist the Warren County board interviewed. Board Chairman Kerry Young said Clayton stood out because of his leadership qualities.
