BOE Resumes Search for New Superintendent

October 8, 2015

 

The Montgomery County Board of Education announced this week that it has resumed its search the next superintendent of schools for Montgomery County Public Schools, who will begin serving on July 1, 2016.

   The Board said in a news release that it was working in partnership with the search firm of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates.  “The Board is committed to hiring the best person to lead our school system in the 21st century. The search will be guided by the tenets of the school district’s strategic planning framework and desired characteristics gathered in the spring of this year from input by stakeholders in Montgomery County,” said the press release.

   The search, which began shortly after it was announced that former Superintendent of Schools Joshua Starr would not be returning after his contract expired. Starr left the post in February.  In February, Bowers was appointed to serve as interim superintendent from February 16, 2015, until June 30, while the Board conducted a search for a new superintendent of schools.

    In June, Bowers was again appointed Interim Superintendent after it was made public that the Board’s “preferred candidate” for the superintendent’s post, Andrew Houlihan, had withdrawn his name from consideration for the job leaving the Board unable to find a superintendent before Bowers was to retire on July 1.

   “The Board greatly appreciates the community’s interest in the process and values your support and patience as we embark on this search for the next leader of our great school system,” said this week’s release.
