Principal selection bill passes Senate

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Senate has passed legislation that would give school superintendents a stronger role in choosing principals.
The bill would let superintendents narrow the number of
candidates for a principal's job to three finalists. School-based
decision-making councils would have three weeks to choose from that
list. If the council couldn't agree on a choice, the superintendent
would select the principal.
Senators on Tuesday attached the proposal to a House-passed
measure that would designate the last Wednesday in August as
Kentucky Literacy Day in public schools.
The amended measure passed on a 19-14 vote. It now returns to
the House, which will decide whether to accept the Senate changes.
The legislation is House Bill 239.
