No Transparency for Montgomery Co. MD in Superintendent Search

“I don’t see that becoming public to protect those individuals,” said Michael Durso, a longtime board member and former principal of Springbrook High School in Silver Spring. As president, he will help oversee the board’s search for a new superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools.
“That’s been a bit of a bone of contention in the past, when the public felt we were being too secretive or really weren’t transparent,” Durso acknowledged Thursday. But he also said keeping the finalists for the job confidential is important to attract candidates who may already be superintendents in other jurisdictions.
Finalists in recent superintendent searches in Boston and Palm Beach, Florida, were revealed to the public for feedback before those local school boards made their decisions.
