Ceglinski Selected As Assistant Superintendent
Michael Ceglinski has been selected as the next Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction and Director of Technology of McCracken County Public Schools.

Ceglinski began his career as a biology teacher at his alma mater, Lone Oak High School (class of 1993), where he later served as assistant principal. In the 2010-11 school year, he was named interim principal of Heath High School and has also served as principal of Ballard Memorial High School. Before becoming the principal of McCracken County High School in 2012, Ceglinski served as the Director of K-12 Instruction for McCracken County Public Schools, having held the instructional director position since 2008. He earned a Bachelor’s of Science in biology from the University of Kentucky in 1997, along with a Master’s Degree in education in 1999. He completed a Rank I in school administration from Murray State University and his superintendent certification from the University of the Cumberlands in 2017.

"I am honored to be chosen as the next Assistant Superintendent of McCracken County Public Schools.  As my role changes within this school district, I look forward to working with all of our schools ensuring that our students have lives filled with opportunities and choices,” Ceglinski said. “Our school district is filled with wonderful people and I count myself lucky to be a small part of this great family."

Ceglinski was chosen from a highly qualified field of candidates. Incoming superintendent, Steve Carter said that going through the process of interviewing candidates for this position confirmed to him that McCracken County Public Schools has an unbelievable caliber of individuals who serve our students.

“McCracken County Public Schools has wonderful educators who focus on what is best for the students in our district,” said Carter. “I look forward to working with Mr. Ceglinski in his new role.”

Carter will serve as superintendent of McCracken County Public Schools beginning July 1.

Interim superintendent, Heath Cartwright, expressed his support of Carter in the selection of Ceglinski.  

“I am confident in Mr. Carter’s choice for Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction and Director of Technology,” said Cartwright. “I have had the privilege of working with Michael Ceglinski throughout his career in McCracken County Public Schools. His passion for education along with his experience and personality make him an excellent fit in this role.”

Cartwright is set to retire June 30.
