Mamie Perkins said Tuesday that her top priority as interim superintendent for Anne Arundel County public schools is simply to get in step with a 78,000-student system that will start a new school year in a little more than a month. "It's not as though I'm coming in asking everyone to start over. I'm coming in trying to catch up," said Perkins, 62. "I want to make sure I do that and respect what's already being done. " Perkins, of Marriottsville, was named Tuesday to serve an 11-month term while Anne Arundel officials seek a permanent replacement for Superintendent Kevin Maxwell, who is leaving to become CEO of Prince George's County public schools.

Mamie Perkins says she speaks each day to Howard County schools Superintendent Sydney Cousin, as she helps fill in for him while he is on a medical leave of absence and receives treatment for cancer. Perkins, whose promotion from Cousin's chief of staff to the county's deputy school superintendent was announced last week, says that Cousin is in good spirits and added, "Every day he reminds us of the expectations he has for us. " Perkins knows that those expectations will likely mount, both within the school system and the Howard community, as she assumes a role vacated when Deputy Superintendent Sandra Erickson retired in June.

I was sorry to read of Mamie Perkins' retirement from the Howard County Public Schools. She proved her ability when she was deputy superintendent during the absence of Sydney Cousin. I heard no complaints about her leadership, ability or loyalty to the educational system of Howard County. In reading the article ("Deputy superintendent retires from school system," Aug. 9), I was amazed that a person with her experience (39 years) was not promoted to the position of superintendent and feel that Howard County lost an extremely qualified leader.

Why is the Baltimore County school system hiring a deputy superintendent at a salary that is negotiable? The money should be used instead to rehire teachers who were let go at Lansdowne High School, which lost 20 teachers last year. The county Board of Education needs to take a field trip to the school and see how they would manage teaching classes that are crowded with regular students, English-as-second-language students and special needs students.

Members of the Baltimore County delegation are demanding an explanation for the school system's spending on top-level administration and its policy of requiring written requests for salary information. In a letter dated Friday, Sen. Kathy Klausmeier and Del. John Olszewski Jr. criticized the school system's recent hiring of a deputy superintendent at an annual salary of $214,000 even as the proposed budget calls for cutting 196 teaching positions at middle and high schools. "Leaving 200 teaching positions vacant will no doubt mean larger class sizes and it may also mean that many important and valuable educational programs will either be understaffed or non-existent," they said in the letter to school Superintendent Joe A. Hairston.
