This is Calloway County Schools Superintendent Kennith Bargo's last year at the helm following the Board of Education's vote last night against renewing his contract. 

The board’s unanimous decision came following an executive session at the district’s central office yesterday.

District spokesperson David Dowdy says Bargo has held the post since 2010 and had asked the board for a two-year extension to his four-year contract in January.

Dowdy says the board’s decision was not based on Bargo’s performance, but says the board is looking for a “more than two-year” superintendent.

Without an extension, Bargo's contract expires June 30th. Dowdy says the board has not discussed when a possible search for a replacement may commence or whether an interim will be instated during the search.
