Board of Education Issues Statement on Superintendent Contract Renewal

January 30, 2015

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

The Board of Education, in a statement written by Board President Patricia O’Neill, said it will discuss and deliberate the future of Superintendent of Schools Joshua Starr in closed session. The statement did not say the Board was leaning one way or another in terms of rehiring Starr or beginning a search for a new superintendent.

   Last week it was reported, by MyMCMedia.org that the Montgomery County Board of Education may not renew MCPS Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joshua Starr’s contract which expires in June.

   The statement released today, Friday, Jan. 30, reads, “A superintendent’s appointment and contract are among the most important responsibilities that the Board of Education has and every member takes these responsibilities very seriously. Under the law, the Board must address the appointment of a superintendent every four years, and state law allows us to deliberate and discuss it in closed session. Out of respect for the process and the superintendent, we believe that is the best course. The Board will notify the public of steps in this process as they are decided, and actions that must be taken publicly will, of course, be conducted in an open session.”

   However, according to a Washington Post editorial sources Starr has been advised to seek conditions for his departure, rather than pursue contract renewal.
