Billy Parker will take the reins as Director of Facilities for Scott County Schools. Parker has served as Principal of Elkhorn Elementary School for two years. Superintendent Dr. Kevin Hub commented on Parker’s selection, “Mr. Parker brings to Scott County his enthusiasm in wanting what is best for our students, staff, and community. His experiences in Franklin and Madison counties give him a broad perspective from which to draw upon. We are excited for him to be part of the Scott County Schools’ leadership team.”
Parker previously served as Principal at Kit Carson Elementary School in Madison County and was Assistant Principal at the Franklin County Early Learning Village East. He taught for eight years at Collins Lane Elementary in Frankfort.
A Scott County native, Parker graduated from Scott County High School in 1996 and went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown College.

He is a National Board Certified teacher and earned a second Master’s degree with Instructional Leadership endorsement from Eastern Kentucky University.
Billy Parker’s official first day with Scott County Schools will be Monday, July 11, 2016. He clearly asserted his goal in this new role: “To assist in building and maintaining positive, welcoming environments, structures, and facilities that promote and enhance learning for all students.” At a recent meeting of the Scott County Board of Education, Superintendent Hub emphasized the importance of providing safe and well-maintained schools. Scott County school facilities cover over 1.4 million square feet. Parker will immediately be greeted with the important task of building a second high school in our growing, thriving district.
