Next MCPS Superintendent To Be Appointed on Tuesday

The next superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools is scheduled to be conditionally appointed at this Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting (February 8th, 2022),  according to the meeting agenda.

Back in October, the  Montgomery County Board of Education  announced a national search for the next superintendent of schools for Montgomery County Public Schools, who will begin serving on July 1, 2022.

The Board of Education then invited residents to participate in a series of virtual town halls to share thoughts on what characteristics are essential for the next superintendent.

Per the announcement of the national, the Board of Education worked in partnership with the search firm of Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates (HYA),  to “hire the best person to lead our school system as we prepare students for success in college and career.”

“The search will be guided by the Board’s core values, strategic priorities, and desired characteristics gathered this year from input by stakeholders in Montgomery County. The Board will be gathering input from the community on the critical characteristics of the next superintendent in a number of ways. There is a survey, virtual town halls, interviews, and focus groups with a broad spectrum of community leaders. All of the information gathered will inform the selection of the next superintendent.”

Last month, former Montgomery County Board of Education members and MCPS principals Michael Durso and Jeanette Dixon wrote a letter in support of MCPS hiring current interim Superintendent Dr. Monifa McKnight as Superintendent for the next four years, effective immediately.

The decision will be the first item discussed on Tuesday’s meeting following the opening of the meeting at 9am.
