The superintendent of Owensboro Public Schools is stepping down at the end of this month, with an interim superintendent taking over at the start of the new year.
Superintendent Nick Brake has led Owensboro Public Schools since 2013. He announced in June he would leave the position at the end of this calendar year.
The school board has named district Chief Academic Officer Matthew Constant as interim superintendent beginning Jan. 1, 2020.
Constant said he is humbled and appreciative that the board has the confidence in him to lead the district during the search for a permanent superintendent.
“Dr. Brake is leaving us in such a good, good place in our district," Constant said. "He’s done a whole lot of things to advance us forward, and I think the interim’s job is to keep that forward momentum without infusing too much change.”
