Carrollton, KY – June 20, 2014 – The Carroll County Board of Education named Mr. Bill Hogan as the new superintendent of the Carroll County School District at its June 19 meeting. Chairperson Mona Kindoll said that Hogan was unanimously selected by the board for the position.
Hogan began his career in the district in 2003 as principal of Carroll County Middle School before becoming assistant superintendent in 2008.
Some key initiatives of Hogan’s tenure as assistant superintendent include the high school MacBook initiative, Denver Thinking Strategies, the new Professional Growth and Evaluation System (PGES) and implementation of the Race to the Top Kid-FRIENDLY grant in the district.
“Moving forward, we are going to have an extreme focus on literacy in the early grades,” Hogan said. “It’s critical that our students are reading on grade level by the time that they leave third grade.”

“I look forward to working with our staff, our community and our public leaders to improve education in Carroll County,” Hogan said. “We have a great school district, and we are going to further the work that we have already begun by instilling pride and passion in our students and in our staff.”
