Tuck named Assistant Superintendent; students headed to WKU for eclipse; Howard gets glowing evaluation
The Butler County Board of Education met in special session on Monday, July 10.
Superintendent Howard recommended to the board that Robert Tuck’s title be changed to Assistant Superintendent. Tuck already holds the positions of Supervisor of Instruction for the middle school and high school, as well as the Director of Pupil Personnel. Howard told the board Tuck is fully certified and works well with the teachers and administrators. He explained that if he was out of the district, Mr. Tuck would be the one to whom people would talk if they needed something. Fourth District board member Delbert Johnson said, “I’m all for it.” Second
District board member Amy Hood said, “In my work, there is always a chain of command. I think this is a good idea.” The board voted unanimously to change his title.
Mr. Howard and the board members had a lengthy discussion on taking students to Western Kentucky University to view the total eclipse on August 21. Bowling Green will have one of the best views of the solar eclipse. Mr. Howard informed the board that WKU invited our school district to come to Houchens-Smith Stadium for educational activities and to view the eclipse.
The board voted to take grades 4-12.
The board went into closed session to complete Superintendent Howard’s annual evaluation. Fifth District board member Ryan Daugherty said, “Mr. Howard consistently goes above and beyond the requirements and responsibilities he has as Superintendent. One would have to look very hard to find a superintendent who is more visible in their community than Mr. Howard is in ours. His commitment to our students’ education, safety, and general well-being from pre-K through post-graduation is easily seen and is genuine. I am grateful to be able to work with him and to have him leading our school district.”
