Frankfort, Ky (AP) — The Kentucky Board of Education has named the superintendent of Colorado’s second-largest school district to be Kentucky’s next education commissioner. Jason Glass will oversee Kentucky’s K-12 school system and its 650,000 students beginning in September. Glass has been serving as superintendent in Jeffco Public Schools in the metro Denver area since 2017.
