Molly McComas is the new coordinator for English as a Second Language (ESL), homeless, and migrant programs for Scott County Schools. Previously she served as Director of Student Services for Williamstown Independent. Her tenure includes being a principal, dean of students, library media specialist, curriculum/assessment specialist, and teacher. McComas has worked with students in preschool through grade 12 during her career in education.
“I’m pleased we found someone who has experience working in school administration, diverse student cultures, and classroom instruction,” stated Assistant Superintendent Maurice Chappell. “Molly will be a great addition to the Office of Student Learning.”
McComas earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Kentucky University, a Master of Library Science from the University of Kentucky, and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Eastern Kentucky University. She holds instructional supervisor, director of pupil personnel, and superintendent certifications.
The programs she serves and the needs of students are growing in Scott County. There are approximately 350 students who receive instruction from certified ESL teachers. In her role, McComas will work to meet the needs of more than 400 students who are identified as homeless. Currently, there are around 100 migrant students who qualify for service because they have lived in the community less than three years and rely on agriculture as the basis of income for the family.
“It is a privilege to join Scott County Schools,” McComas reflected on her new position. “I look forward to working with the dedicated staff and teachers in this district to meet the needs of our students and their families.”
Molly McComas resides in Owen County with her husband of 22 years and their two children.
