Interim principals have been named for Boyle County Middle School and Woodlawn Elementary.
Gayla Jenkins will serve as interim principal at the middle school and Charlie Edwards will serve as interim principals at Woodlawn while the school councils continue with their searches for principals.
Interim roles became necessary upon the resignations of two principals who accepted positions in other districts. Frank LaBoone, principal at Boyle County Middle School since 1997, is principal at Johnson Elementary in the Fayette County School District. Max Pope, principal at Woodlawn Elementary since 1993, now is principal at Brockman Montessori Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina.
Jenkins has served as a team member on Kentucky Department of Education scholastic audits since 1999, representing either the University of Kentucky or Kentucky State University. Also since 1999, she has been a teacher educator for the Kentucky Teacher Intern Program that supports teachers throughout their first year of employment.
