    Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Search

    in News

    The Montgomery County Board of Education has begun interviewing candidates to be the next superintendent for Montgomery County Public Schools. The eight-member board chose not to renew Joshua Starr's contact, Montgomery County's recently-departed superintendent who left Montgomery County earlier this year in February. 


    The school system hired the firm Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to conduct a nationwide search. So far, the search process has been tightly sealed from the public and board members have not spoken about any of the finalists. 


    During this episode, Ryan Miner will cohost A Miner Detail with former Montgomery County Board of Education candidate Laurie Halverson. Laurie and Ryan will detail the superintendent search process and what parents, teachers, and taxpayers should expect from the search committee.
