 Twelve people have applied for the position of LaRue County High School principal. As of last week, the pool had been narrowed to four candidates by the school’s site-based decision-making council.

The council is arranging interviews on June 26, 27 and 28.

The council has selected several questions to ask each candidate including: “How would you help an inexperienced teacher become more effective in the classroom?” “How will you maintain staff morale when the pressure is on in a high-stakes accountability environment?” and “How do you resolve conflict between staff members?”

The new principal will take over for Paul Mullins, who resigned after eight years to accept the role as superintendent of schools for Garrard County.

The SBDM council meeting members are Superintendent Sam Sanders, David Owens, Jennifer Price, Jorge Venegas, Justin Craft and Shannon Bowen. Also attending the meetings are Chris Price and Rebecca Higdon who will become council members after July 1.

Opening day for teachers is Aug. 5.
