FRANKFORT INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS BOARD OF EDUCATION NAMES NEW SUPERINTENDENT; SATTERLY BRINGS ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE, HIGH SCHOOL AND CENTRAL OFFICE EXPERIENCE, DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE IN FINANCE AND ARTS Frankfort, KY (June 28, 2022) - The Frankfort Independent Schools Board of Education announced the hiring of Sheri Satterly as the district’s next Superintendent at a special called meeting Tuesday. The board unanimously approved a four-year contract with Satterly, who currently serves as Assistant Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer of Danville Independent Schools. A Danville alumna, Satterly is also a veteran educator for the district. Her 18-year tenure has included service as an elementary school music teacher and reading interventionist; a middle school counselor and principal; and a high school guidance counselor overseeing college and career readiness. As an administrator overseeing the district’s instructional programs and services, Satterly also developed expertise in financial management, federal programs such as Title I and ESSER, and Comprehensive School/District Improvement Planning. Satterly facilitated the formation of Danville Independent’s Equity Council and serves on the Kentucky Association of School Administrators’ Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee. A vocalist and former choral director, Satterly also brings to Frankfort a passion for excellence in the arts. Board Chair Jina Greathouse praised Satterly’s depth of experience and reputation as a servant-leader, noting that the board plans to host a community meet-and-greet in August. “We look forward to introducing Ms. Satterly to our students, staff, families and community. It was clear from the outset that she has done her homework on our district, and she is ready and eager to join the Panther family as our next Superintendent.” Satterly will assume the Superintendent role this Friday, July 1. She will fill the vacancy left by Dr. Houston Barber, who announced his resignation in April after accepting the position of Fayette County Public Schools Deputy Superintendent.
4-5-2022 Dear FIS Families, Students, Staff and Community, The love I have for this school system and community is unwavering and deep-rooted to the core of my mind, body, and spirit. I am so grateful and thankful that the FIS Board of Education Team afforded me the opportunity to collaborate with such wonderful teams and individuals to support the transformation of the lives of so many students in order that they become the best version of themselves. Over the last 7 years, we have accomplished too many things to name and I say we because it was a complete team effort. Our focus throughout my tenure has been students! While I thought and dreamed that I would remain in Frankfort Independent Schools the rest of my career, ultimately, I have decided to accept another position that begins July 1, 2022. I intend to remain in Frankfort Independent Schools until June 30, 2022 as we begin a transition plan. The team we have in place in FIS is highly functional and I have full confidence the work will carry forward and even accelerate beyond measure. This is the single toughest decision my family and I have had to make in terms of next steps together with the focus on work and life. We will remain in the Frankfort community and my kids will continue to attend school in Frankfort Independent Schools. This is my family and my love for you will continue! I am a Panther for life! Best, Houston Barber
