The Paducah School Board voted unanimously to hire Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Programs Donald Shively to be the district's next superintendent during a special meeting Monday.

Paducah Public Schools superintendent Randy Greene is resigning next summer, after 10 years on the job. Greene made the announcement at Monday's Board of Education meeting.

Board of Education chair Danette Humphrey said the board will form a search committee to begin a nationwide search. The committee will forward the results of its search to the board, which will then select candidates to interview.
