On July 1, Jeffco Public Schools' superintendent of about three years, Jason Glass, was named one of three finalists that are in the running to be Kentucky's next Commissioner of Education.

Second-round interviews took place July 6 and 7. Glass' fellow candidates are Julian Vasquez Heilig, who works at the University of Kentucky as a professor and the dean of the College of Education; and Felicia Cumings Smith, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning at Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky.

Glass began serving as Jeffco Public Schools' superintendent and chief learner in 2017. He has also served as superintendent for Colorado's Eagle County Schools and as the Iowa Department of Education Director.

Glass is a Kentucky native and attended the University of Kentucky, where he earned a master's degree in education, a master's degree in political science and a bachelor's degree in political science and history.

Jeffco Public Schools said Glass is declining media interviews until a final decision about the position has been made.

The Kentucky Board of Education says it will its selection in mid- or late July.
