FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday has accomplished his goal of visiting schools in all 174 public school systems in the state.
The Kentucky Department of Education reports that visiting every district was a goal Holliday set when he was named commissioner in 2009. The final visits were to schools in Green and Hart counties Tuesday.
KDE says Holliday visited more than 400 schools. He met with teachers and administrators, served a few lunches, helped teach classes and occasionally returned to his roots as a music teacher and helped lead the school band.
