Supt. Osborne announces retirement

Carrollton, Ky. - Dec. 13, 2021 - Superintendent Danny Osborne has announced that he will be retiring at the end of this school year, June 30, 2022. Osborne has served as the Carroll County School District superintendent since 2018. In the coming weeks, the Carroll County Board of Education will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent. The board will announce additional information about that process when it is available.


"It has been a tremendous honor to serve this community and the students and staff of Carroll County these last four years," Osborne said in a December 13 email to staff. "I have worked with amazing people and have made great friends in my time in Carroll County. I appreciate each and every one of you for your dedication and commitment to our students and each other and for welcoming me into our Panther Family, which I will always feel a part of."


As superintendent, Osborne led the district through a number of unexpected challenges, which included the emergency roof renovation of Kathryn Winn Primary and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic.


Osborne came to the district from the Kentucky Department of Education, where he served as an education recovery leader. He worked in several capacities during his 22 years in public education:


– Education Recover Leader, Kentucky Department of Education: 2012 – 2018

– Director of Instructional Support Services, Owen County Schools: 2012

– Principal, Owen County High School, Owen County Schools: 2010 – 2012

– Principal, Virgie Middle School, Pike County Schools: 2004 – 2010

– Special Education Teacher, Pike County Schools: 2000 – 2004


“I will always be an adamant supporter of Carroll County and the students and staff of Carroll County and wish you all the best in all future endeavors,” Osborne wrote.
