FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Department of Education is moving after spending 44 years at its current location at the Capital Plaza Tower in downtown Frankfort.
The agency is relocating to the 300 Building, a five-story office space along Sower Boulevard, off the East-West Connector, in Frankfort.
Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt says the new building will reduce energy costs. He says improved technology will allow staff to better support public schools and districts in Kentucky.
The department says its employees will move over a six-week period starting Aug. 22.
A logistics team is working to minimize staff downtime during the move, but officials say there might be a slight delay in returning phone calls or answering emails during the moving period. Staff telephone numbers will remain the same.
