Larry Bowers to Continue as Interim Superintendent of Schools
UPDATED May 20, 3:15 p.m.The Montgomery County Board of Education voted unanimously to appoint Larry Bowers as interim superintendent of schools for Montgomery County Public Schools through June 30, 2016.
The Montgomery County Board of Education is scheduled to meet on Wednesday to take action on the conditional appointment of the interim superintendent of schools for Montgomery County Public Schools.
The appointment—effective July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016—will be contingent upon final written approval of the State Superintendent of Schools, as required by state law. It is unclear who that interim superintendent will be.
Larry Bowers currently serves as interim superintendent and has indicated he planned to retire at the end of this school year.
“Larry Bowers has also indicated he will work for a smooth transition to who serves as superintendent next,” MCPS Spokesperson Dana Tofig told MyMCMedia.
That seems to leave the door open for Bowers’ to stay on in the interim role while the school board conducts another search for a permanent replacement.
The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. and will be held in the Board Meeting Room of the Carver Educational Services Center, 850 Hungerford Drive, in Rockville.
