Flynn to Take Helm at KASA

Simpson County Superintendent of Schools Jim Flynn will takeover the Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA) next year after he ends his tenure in public education.

The Bowling Green Daily News reports:

Flynn, who is in his 16th year as superintendent, will become executive director of the Kentucky Association of School Superintendents on July 1. In his new role, Flynn will help shape education policy in the state and help support Kentucky’s 173 school districts and superintendents who lead them.

“I think it’s an exciting opportunity,” said Flynn, who also called his tenure at Simpson County Schools an honor and a privilege. “It’s going to be a change for me.”

 

Flynn previously served as the group’s president in 2013-14, and he was named Kentucky Superintendent of the Year for 2015.

A 1986 graduate of Western Kentucky University, Flynn holds a bachelor’s degree in science, with a major in biology and minor in chemistry. He earned a master’s degree in biology and secondary education from Texas A&M University, a Rank I in high school administration from WKU and a doctorate in educational leadership from Northern Kentucky University.
