Carmean Elected President of Kenton School Board; Thrush Asks for Bus Drivers During Regular Meeting

Posted on January 11, 2022

The Kenton City Schools Board of Education held its reorganizational meeting Monday evening.

Doug Carmean was elected President and Justin Dick Vice President for 2022.

Various Committee assignments were also made.

The Board will continue to meet on the third Monday of the month with a few exceptions throughout the year.

The meetings will start at 7 in the Administration Building.

At the regular meeting that followed, Superintendent Chad Thrush reported that the first day of the new drop off and pick up route at the Kenton Elementary School went very well on Monday, “All the parents were dropping off and picking up in the back and then the buses were dropping off and picking up in the front, and it went very very well especially for the first run. We were very happy, we actually got our parents out sooner than we ever have and we got our buses out sooner than we ever have, but there are there are some tweaks and things we need to do to continue to make it better, but for a first run we were really happy with the way things went.” 

The Superintendent added they are looking for input from parents as they continue to improve the process, ”We want to know if they have ideas or thoughts on improvement. We do not believe we have it all figured out, but we do think we’re heading in the right direction.” 

Thrush also encouraged those who may be interested in driving a bus to contact them, ”We would take care of getting them trained and all of that. We are definitely struggling right now in finding folks to drive bus, so if you know someone, have them get a hold of us, we’d love to talk to them about driving bus for us.” 

The next regular meeting will be held February 14.
