Balto. Co. school administrator finalist for Bellevue, Wash., job

March 29, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Michael N. Riley, associate superintendent for administration and instruction in the Baltimore County school system, is one of three finalists for the superintendency of the Bellevue, Wash., school system, which has about 15,300 students.

School board members from Bellevue plan to visit the county in the next two weeks to talk to school system employees and community leaders.

Dr. Riley, 45, is competing with two superintendents for the post, which pays about $100,000 a year. He has been associate superintendent since last year and was superintendent of the northwest area from 1993 to 1995.

Some school system employees had speculated that he would be a strong contender for the superintendency in Baltimore County, which was awarded this month to Anthony G. Marchione.

Dr. Riley said last night that it would have been inappropriate to compete with Dr. Marchione, who he said "is exactly the right person for the job right now and deserves the job after 40 years of loyal service."
