Election on Site Based Decision Making Council

Dear Whitley Central Intermediate School Parents:


I hope you’ll consider running for our school council, or encourage a friend to do so.


In Kentucky, each school has a council composed of the principal, elected teachers, and elected parents who make many of the most important decisions about how their school will work. The council is a wonderful chance to learn about our school, work closely with teachers, and help make our school even more successful than it is now.  The parent members of the council are elected by parents.  They receive training and will serve from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.  To help with questions you may have about becoming a parent representative on a site based council, please visit our school web page for a fact sheet about becoming a parent member of Kentucky school councils.


Nominations will be taken from May 7, 2020 through May 13, 2020. Nominations are due in the school office no later than 2:30 PM on May 13, 2020.   To nominate someone you can return this from into a designated box in front of the school Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM-3:00 PM or you can email your nomination to tracy.powers@whitley.kyschools.us. If you know someone who would be a good candidate, please encourage that person to run.


Due to Covid 19, elections will be a little different this year.  An election ballot box will be outside the front of the school on May 20, 2020 from 8AM-3PM.  If you have a child that will be enrolled at Whitley Central Intermediate School for the 2020-2021 school year, you are eligible to vote in this election.  This includes parents, step parents, and foster parents.  Legal guardians are also eligible to vote if the child lives in their home.  I urge every parent to participate in this important decision about the future of our children’s school. 


Results will be announced on May 20 after the election is over.  If necessary, a run-off will be held on a later date. 


Thank you for your interest in our school, and please let me know if you have questions.




Kellie Clemens

Whitley Central Intermediate P.T.O. President
