The Anne Arundel County school board has postponed its Wednesday announcement of its new superintendent, saying it needs additional time to negotiate a contract and perform background checks. School board president Teresa Birge said Monday the board decided before mapping out its agenda for Wednesday's meeting that it wasn't ready to announce the decision. She declined to say whether the board had chosen the superintendent. After receiving 55 applicants in February, the board last month narrowed down its selection to three finalists: George Arlotto, school system chief of staff; Maureen McMahon, assistant superintendent for advanced studies and programs; and Francisco Durán, superintendent of Trenton Public Schools in New Jersey.

Dr. Mary Rockwell Hovet, a former assistant superintendent of schools in Howard County, died in her sleep Wednesday at Brighton Gardens assisted-living community in Columbia. She was 85 and lived in Clarksville. When she retired in 1981, Dr. Hovet had become one of the few women to rise to the superintendent level in Howard County, which led to her induction into the county's Women's Hall of Fame in 1997. "She was far ahead of her time," said Reva Bryant, a retired Howard County administrator who worked with Dr. Hovet in the 1970s.

The revelation that former Baltimore County Schools Superintendent Joe Hairston supposedly protected two administrative employees who recently have been transferred to other positions raises several huge red flags ("Hairston gave employment contracts to two top aides before retiring," July 13). These alleged "contracts" ignore the fact that all school personnel, including the superintendent, are employed by the Board of Education, not by an individual. Donald Peccia was appointed assistant superintendent of human resources in 2004; Phyllis Reese was hired as chief of communications in 2009.

As a retired school teacher with 30 years in the classroom (who regularly goes back to substitute), I feel I have the experience and insight to make observations regarding the just announced appointment of S. Dallas Dance to the position of Superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools. Mr. Dance, at 30 years of age, will be the youngest superintend to ever lead our school system. It is evident, through this choice, that the Board of Education is seeking a person with ambition, focus and drive who will lead the schools in a new and innovative direction.

Your reporters did a fine job in discussing Nancy Grasmick's productive career and sterling performance as state superintendent of schools ("Grasmick announces she'll retire in June," March 31). The accolades were earned and well-deserved. I do, however, wish to speak to one glaring omission, namely, Ms. Grasmick's outstanding service in the Baltimore County Public Schools. We are very proud that she served the BCPS in superb fashion as principal, area assistant superintendent, as assistant superintendent in instruction and associate superintendent of administration.

Carroll County's assistant superintendent for instruction, Dorothy "Dottie" Mangle, will retire this summer after 30 years as a teacher and administrator in county schools. Her retirement will end a five-decades-long string of first days of school for Mangle, who has been "going to school full time" since her mother signed her up for preschool at age 3. "I will have to find something to do the first day of school this year because when I see those yellow school buses on the road, I'm sure I'll be inclined to follow them somewhere, anywhere, to whatever school they're going to," the 52-year-old said in jest.
