Brad McKinney, an 18-year employee of the FCS Department of Transportation, has been appointed as the school district's next director of transportation. Brad currently is a bus driver trainer and the district's field trip coordinator. He previously drove a school bus for 15 years.

Brad was selected from a group of nearly 20 applicants for the position, as the interview committee felt he possesses the knowledge, expertise and experience required for the position. He also has the qualities FCS bus drivers, bus monitors and school principals said they want in their next transportation leader.

The FCS Transportation Department operates nearly 70 buses each day, safely carrying an estimated 4,500 students each day.

The position is being vacated by Joseph Shepherd, who is taking a position in a district closer to his home.

The Franklin County Board of Education last night approved a tax increase - and then a salary increase of 2 percent for all FCS staff - including all teachers, counselors, instructional aides, cooks, custodians, bus drivers, monitors and others.  The tax increase will cost about $21 per year on a property valued at $100,000.

Some 50 Franklin County Schools educators attended a hearing at the Early Learning Village. Several teachers and administrators and at least two community members spoke in favor of the increase, while two community members expressed opposition.

FCS teacher pay currently ranks 90th out of Kentucky's 173 school districts. Supt. Mark Kopp has said that making FCS salaries more competitive will help the district recruit and retain high quality teachers.

The board also amended the school calendar, changing Friday, Oct. 27 from a District Staff Day to a regular school day in order to make-up for closing school on "Eclipse Day," Aug. 21. See the revised calendar...
