BOSTON – The Boston School Committee has voted 5-0 to appoint Boston Public Schools Chief Financial Officer John McDonough as Interim Superintendent. McDonough, who has served as CFO since 1996, will lead the District after Superintendent Carol R. Johnson retires this summer.
“During nearly two decades as Chief Financial Officer, John has demonstrated a clear commitment to equity, transparency and fiscal accountability in our schools,” said Mayor Thomas M. Menino. “He is a trusted leader who knows what it takes to ensure every student succeeds with the right resources in every classroom. John will do a great job building on all the progress we are making in our schools, which will give our community confidence that our schools are in great hands as the School Committee conducts a thorough search for Boston’s next Superintendent.”
