FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Board of Education has chosen Kevin C. Brown as interim commissioner while its search continues for a successor to Commissioner Terry Holliday.

The board is meeting in Frankfort for its annual retreat and August meeting. The board reviewed applicants for the commissioner’s post in closed session Wednesday.

Holliday is retiring Aug. 31.

The Education Department said in a news release that the board wants the search firm that’s assisting with the search to seek additional information on 15 applicants, representing both in-state and out-of-state candidates.

The first round of interviews is Aug. 14 and 15 in Louisville.

Brown is an associate commissioner and department general counsel. He will serve starting Sept. 1 with a salary equivalent to $150,000 per year until a new commissioner is in place.
