Site-based council asks residents to complete survey

In the wake of the resignation of LaRue County High School Principal Paul Mullins, the school’s site-based decision-making council is “left with the difficult task of replacing” him, said council member and teacher Justin Craft.

Mullins, after eight years at the helm of LCHS, has accepted a position as superintendent of schools in Garrard County.

At its last meeting, the council approved an online survey to gather information from the community on “what qualities it wants in our next principal at LCHS.”

The survey is available on the school district’s website www.larue.k12.ky.us/ in this format:

“Consider the following criteria for the LCHS principal selection. How important are the following traits?”

Criteria include: experience, sense of humor, supports and works with staff, flexibility and open-mindedness.

It takes a few minutes to complete. Surveys can be completed anonymously.

The council meets at 8 a.m. July 19 to review applications.
