KY Education Commissioner Glass leaving position

Kentucky Education Commissioner Jason Glass will be leaving his position next month.

Glass, who has been a guest on All Things Russell on Laker Country 104.9 in the past, will leave his position on Sept. 29 to become associate vice president of teaching and learning at Western Michigan University.

Glass was appointed commissioner in 2020 by the Kentucky Board of Education and his four-year contract was set to expire in September 2024.

The state board will hold a special-called meeting in mid-August to determine next steps and a timeline for moving forward with an interim commissioner once Glass leaves.
