Hudson Superintendent of Schools Sheldon Berman will soon be calling Kentucky his new home after accepting a contract today to run the Louisville school district, one of the nationís largest.

The 58-year-old will move his wife and three sons to Kentucky by July 1, when he will officially begin his new job. He has been at the helm in Hudson for 14 years, during which time he was named Massachusetts Superintendent of the Year.

The seven-member Jefferson County Board of Education unanimously voted this morning to offer Berman a four-year contract with a $260,000 a year base salary. He made $190,000 last year. Berman was the sole finalists after two others dropped out.

Jefferson County Public Schools is the nationís 31st largest district with 98,000 students. Hudson has 2,900 students.
