Ky. school councils could no longer hire principals under bill
Legislation that would strip all school-based councils in Kentucky of the authority to hire their schools’ principals passed the Senate State and Local Government Committee on Wednesday.
Senate Bill 7, sponsored by Sen. John Schickel, cleared the panel on an 8-3 vote. Similar legislation has been introduced by Schickel, R-Union, with limited success in recent sessions.
While a similar bill cleared the Senate on a 23-13 vote last session, it never made it out of the House Education Committee.
