With a week left before the Sept. 22 deadline for submitting applications for the vacant seat on the Clark County School Board, no one has applied.
But that’s not something to panic about, according to John Thompson, the commissioner’s designee for local board member appointments for the Kentucky Department of Education.
“This is not unusual for us not to get any applications until the last few days. Often we’ll get several applications on that last day,” Thompson said. “I hope we can get them, but if no qualified applications are received by Sept. 22, then the department will have to extend the application process until it does get two qualified applicants.”
Thompson said if two qualified applicants are found by the deadline, he hoped to have someone selected to fill the seat by October, but if not, it would probably be sometime in November.
