LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Board of Education has chosen a firm to search for the state’s next education commissioner.

The board met Thursday and chose Florida-based Greenwood/Asher and Associates Inc. The Department of Education said in a news release it is the same firm that conducted the search for Commissioner Terry Holliday, Council on Postsecondary Education President Bob King and University of Kentucky presidents Lee Todd and Eli Capilouto.

The firm’s bid to conduct the search was for $80,000 plus expenses.

Holliday is retiring at the end of August. He has served in the position since 2009.

The release said the board is putting together a draft list of characteristics it seeks in the next commissioner and will present it to the public for input.
