Board of Education continues search for new commissioner

(AP) — The Kentucky Board of Education is meeting again Tuesday as it looks for a successor to Commissioner Terry Holliday, who is retiring at the end of the month.

The Education Department says the board will meet in Lexington to discuss additional information gathered on candidates and possibly conduct more interviews in closed session.

The board interviewed 12 candidates earlier this month.

The board is also expected to decide Tuesday whether to release finalists' names.
Final interviews are scheduled Friday and Saturday in Lexington.

Associate Commissioner and General Counsel Kevin C. Brown will serve as interim commissioner until a new commissioner begins.
