      Nick Barton named principal of the Early Learning Village

      Frankfort, KY, April 21, 2020 – Franklin County Schools Superintendent Mark Kopp announced today that Nick Barton will be the new principal of the Early Learning Village.


      “We are very excited to announce Nick as the new principal at the Early Learning Village. His student-centered leadership and passion for the school will serve him well as principal. We are confident Nick has what it takes to lead the Early Learning Village to even greater heights” said Kopp.


      Barton, a Frankfort resident, earned his BA in Early Childhood Education from KSU, MA in Early Childhood Education from Georgetown College, and a Rank I Principal Certification from the University of the Cumberlands. He began his career with Franklin County Schools in 2002 as a teacher at Hearn Elementary School. He then transferred to the Early Learning Village in 2008, the schools’ opening year. Barton later worked for Frankfort Independent Schools from 2012 to 2019 when he then returned to Franklin County Schools to work as a Behavior Interventionist. 


      "I am honored and humbled to have been chosen as the next principal at the Franklin County Early Learning Village”, said Barton. “I began my career here in this building almost 20 years ago and it is only fitting that I begin my career as an administrator in the same building.  I look forward to working with a phenomenal staff and the challenges that lie ahead of us."


      Barton will replace Larry Murphy, who has been principal of the Early Learning Village for seven years. Murphy joined the Early Learning Village in 2012 as the assistant principal. He was appointed principal the following year, in 2013. Murphy took a new position with Franklin County Schools as Director of Federal Programs and will begin his new duties on July 1, 2020. 


      “I am absolutely happy for Nick and know that he will do a great job as principal. Nick has a genuine passion and drive to ensure that all kids will be successful” said Murphy.

      calendar change

      Important Calendar Change (pending Board approval)

      We received notification from the Kentucky Department of Education that districts are now able to count any NTI days used as 7-hour days.  This enabled our district to recalculate the number of instructional hours provided to our students.  As a result of this recalculation, Franklin County Schools will meet the 1,062 required hours of instructional time on May 12, 2020.  Therefore, pending approval by the Franklin County Board of Education, the last instructional day (the last day of NTI work) for students during the current 2019-2020 school year will be May 12, 2020.  This is a change from the previously scheduled last day being on May 20, 2020.
