The Kentucky Board of Education will meet Friday and Saturday in Louisville to interview 12 candidates interested in becoming the state's next education commissioner.
The interviews will begin at 7a.m. both days at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, but they will all be done in closed session.
At the conclusion of the interviews Saturday, the state board will discuss the interviews and determinate which candidates will proceed with reference checks.
The board is searching for a replacement for retiring Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday, whose last day is Aug. 31.
Last week, the board decided to appoint associate commissioner Kevin Brown as interim commissioner while they continue their search.
Brown, who oversees the Office of Guiding and Support Services and serves as general counsel of the Kentucky Department of Education, will start his interim role on Sept. 1.
