The future database stems from last week's allegations that a former superintendent pocketed nearly $224,000 in unauthorized benefits and payments from a struggling district in northern Kentucky.

The public will soon be able to view the full compensation packages of Kentucky's superintendents as well as their performance evaluations on the education department's website, state officials have announced.

The future database stems from last week's allegations that a former superintendent pocketed nearly $224,000 in unauthorized benefits and payments from a struggling district in northern Kentucky.

Kentucky Auditor Adam Edelen, who investigated the alleged thefts, said at a Thursday press conference that the information will help the public -- and more importantly school boards -- hold accountable their districts' leadership.

The Kentucky Department of Education will display compensation information after July 1 and evaluations after Dec. 1. Education Department Associate Commissioner Hiren Desai said the state also will start to require districts to evaluate superintendents' handling of fiscal matters.
