Search Committee recommends next BPS Superintendent: Dr. Carol R. Johnson

The Superintendent Search Committee will unanimously present a sole finalist to Mayor Menino and the Boston School Committee in a press conference tomorrow afternoon. The panel plans to recommend the selection of Dr. Carol R. Johnson, currently Superintendent of the Memphis City Schools, as the next Superintendent of the Boston Public Schools. Dr. Johnson has been credited in Memphis with turning around low-performing schools, narrowing achievement gaps, and successfully engaging families and the community in school reform. Prior to her tenure in Memphis, Dr. Johnson was Superintendent of the Minneapolis Public Schools. The School Committee intends to vote on the recommendation at its June 27 meeting.
