The Baltimore Sun reported this morning that the city will name Andres Alonso as the new CEO of the public schools there. Alonso is currently the deputy chancellor of teaching and learning here in New York, and he was the chief of staff to Carmen Farina when she led the department.
Chancellor Klein has scheduled a press conference for 2 p.m. in which he will name Marcia Lyles as Alonso's replacement. Lyles is the current superintendent of Region 8, and in July she was slated to become the leader of the new Community Learning Support Organization. The roughly 165 schools that chose to join her LSO will now be led by Elaine Goldberg, Lyles' deputy.
Lyles will be the third instructional leader for the city's schools in just over a year.
