Thursday night’s Christian County School Board meeting will feature discussion of several notable items, not the least of which is the contract of Superintendent Brady Link.
Superintendent Link is completing the final year of a four-year contract and told the Kentucky New Era he only wants his next contract to be for one year. He reportedly said he is seriously considering retirement after next year, but that he could change his mind.
Link replaced Doctor Bob Lovingood in 2008 and it is common practice for superintendents to sign four-year contracts, though it is not extremely uncommon for one to resign his position mid-term.
Superintendent Link received a favorable evaluation last year, though board member Betsy Glover would say she intended to vote “no” at the special called meeting.
Other items on the agenda include the rental of Christian County High School’s baseball field for use by the proposed Hoptown Hoppers minor league baseball team at a cost of 30 dollars per hour or a minimum of 150 dollars per usage.
The board will meet Thursday evening at 6pm at the district office on Glass Avenue.
