The study was designed to provide information on Hispanic administrators in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The data was obtained from Kentucky school Superintendents or their designees in 175 public school districts. The Hispanic survey contained six questions. The survey was mailed to Kentucky Superintendents on April 21, 2008. A follow-up survey was mailed on May 19, 2008. Data was obtained from 153 Kentucky public school districts for an 87.4% return percent. The conclusions for the survey were: (1) There are few Hispanic school administrators in Kentucky; (2) There are six Hispanic men and three Hispanic women currently working as Kentucky school administrators; (3) Only five Kentucky school districts currently have Hispanic administrators; (4) Three of these Kentucky school districts are urban, one is small town, and one is rural; and (5) Four of the Kentucky school districts view themselves as average in wealth and one as poor. This is the second research project on Hispanics in Kentucky school districts conducted by Dr. Victor Ballestero and Dr. Sam Wright at Morehead State University. Further research has been proposed to study Hispanic school board members in Kentucky. (Three appendixes include: (1) Hispanic Administrator Survey; (2) Letter to School Superintendents; and (3) Follow-up Letter.)
