The Jefferson County Board of Education is currently conducting a nationwide search for a superintendent to lead the nation’s twenty-eighth largest school district. The new superintendent will replace Dr. Donna Hargens, whose resignation from the position became effective July 1, 2017. Dr. Martin Pollio is currently serving as acting superintendent of the district.  

Community engagement and collaboration are important parts of hiring the new superintendent for JCPS. The Board invites public input and hopes that all JCPS stakeholders will be a part of hiring the new superintendent. The members of the Board are currently working through each of the steps in the superintendent search process. The latest information regarding the superintendent search will be posted on this webpage for public viewing.
