After 28 years in the Oldham County school district, Superintendent Paul Upchurch has announced he will retire in June.
Upchurch announced his decision Monday during the board of education meeting.
Upchurch became superintendent in 2005 after seven years leading the Elizabethtown Independent School District. Prior to Elizabethtown, Uphurch was both a teacher and principal for Oldham County Schools.
One major factor in the timing of his retirement are the changes coming with Kentucky Senate Bill 1, Upchurch said.
