The Anne Arundel County school board will discuss its search for a new superintendent at its Sept. 25 meeting, officials said. Board Member Stacy Korbelak, chair of an ad hoc superintendent search committee, said the group will make a presentation before the full board discussing whether to enlist a search firm. It had earlier been stated that the panel would discuss the findings at its Sept. 15 retreat. The school system is looking to replace Kevin Maxwell, who departed to take a similar position in Prince George's County.

As a citizen of Baltimore I have to say I'm ashamed of the amount of money paid to outgoing city schools CEO Andrés Alonso for unused leave time ( "Alonso cashes in on leave," July 29). Please tell me how a $150,000 payout is justified. What was the city thinking? I know that I have no coffers to pull from when I need supplies or books or equipment to instruct the young minds in my classroom. My kids scored proficient this year on Maryland State Assessments. That's a huge jump from previous years.

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.

Letter to The Aegis | February 7, 2013
Editor: I cannot tell you the relief that I feel that Dr. Tomback has decided to leave the Harford County School System at the end of this school year. This has been a reign of terror and discontent and I am very hopeful that the current Board of Education can do Harford County proud and locate a new Superintendent that is committed to Harford County Public Schools and its success. I  can only hope that Dr. Tomback takes some of his Baltimore County cronies with him. These people and a few others have tried to destroy the spirit of the Harford County School System, but Harford County will prevail!

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | February 7, 2013
When Dr. Robert Tomback became superintendent of Harford County Public Schools in 2009, he was not only an unknown from Baltimore County, but also it was unknown how he might perform. The direction of the school system's leadership structure was another great unknown. The county was making the transition from a board of education wholly appointed by the governor to a board with a majority of its members elected by the people of Harford County. The Tomback era in the school system also came about amid a time of tumult resulting from the unexpected death of the previous superintendent, Jacqueline Haas, who succumbed at 59 to an asthma attack in late 2008 during the Christmas break.

New Baltimore County Superintendent Dallas Dance will be the guest at the next Sun Newsmaker Forum this Thursday, when he will answer questions from the public about his plans for the school system and the decisions he has already made. Mr. Dance's appointment caused a stir in Baltimore County; he is just 31 years old, has never been a superintendent before and has no experience in Maryland schools. The state had to provide the county a waiver to hire him because he lacks the three years of classroom teaching Maryland law requires.

While visiting classes on the first day of school, new Howard County Superintendent Renee Foose had a pedometer strapped to her waist as part of a systemwide program for employees that emphasizes health. By midmorning, she had already logged tens of thousand of steps, canvassing hallways, classrooms, weight rooms, media centers and cafeterias of the system she took over in July. "This is like a kid waking up on Christmas morning. That's exciting," said Foose, who joined other local, state and elected officials in ushering in the first day of the academic calendar year for many jurisdictions.

Dallas Dance knew a little of what the Perry Hall High School students were going through Monday after a student was critically wounded in the cafeteria by another student. His senior year at Armstrong High School in Richmond, Va., a 14-year-old student had opened fire with a pistol in a hallway, wounding two adults as students took exams. No one prepares superintendents for first days like this, but Baltimore County's new superintendent said school systems always prepare for such acts of violence.

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.
