Hardin County Schools has selected one its own to take over an open associate superintendent slot.\
Mark Kopp, director of secondary instruction, curriculum and assessment for Hardin County Schools, has been hired as associate superintendent for instruction.
Kopp begins July 1 and replaces Robert King, who will become principal of Brown Street Alternative Education Center.
Kopp said he wanted to move into the position because of the instructional leadership in Central Office and the schools, and the great teachers he works with every day.
He hopes to continue the growth in results the district has experienced. He believes instruction is the most important job the district has.
“If you have good teaching going on, kids are going to learn,” he said.
Kopp has taught middle and high school, and then worked at the Kentucky Department of Education for four years in the Division of Curriculum Development. With these past experiences, as well as his duties with his current position, he feels prepared to take on the associate superintendent role and to meet the challenge of new standards and a changing state assessment system.
Kopp’s current position will be posted to seek applicants.
