Lawrence board tables pact for new super
by Roberta Blevins

LOUISA — The Lawrence County school board Monday night tabled the contract for its new incoming superintendent until a special meeting June 31.

Jeffrey D. May of Pikeville was named Lawrence County’s new superintendent last month, replacing long-time schools chief Eddie Michael. Monday night’s meeting was Michael’s last regularly scheduled session as superintendent.

May worked for the Pike County Board of Education from 1982-1995, serving as a teacher and a principal, among other things. After his tenure with the Pike County School District, May became a highly skilled educator for the Kentucky Department of Education from 1995-1998 before going to work for the Jenkins Independent Schools, serving as director of pupil personnel, director of transportation, director of extended school services, safe school coordinator, director of buildings and grounds, director of vocational education, director for Title IV and director of homebound instruction.

In action during Monday’s meeting, the board authorized the superintendent to purchase computer furniture, approved two 100-day contracts, the textbook plan for 2003-04, the district comprehensive improvement plan and the treasurer’s bond.
