WBAL Reveals Four Potential Finalists For Baltimore County's Next Superintendent
BALTIMORE COUNTY - WBAL reports that sources have provided the news service with names of the four finalists for the next Baltimore County Superintendent.
The search to replace Darryl Williams began after he announced he would not seek a new contract in January.
According to BCPS, 24 applicants from 15 states have thrown their hats into the ring to become Baltimore County’s next superintendent. This week, community groups, associations, educators, employee unions, and board members interviewed the finalists.
According to WBAL sources, the four finalists include:
- Myriam Yarbrough: The only in-house candidate, Yarbrough, is a current deputy BCPS superintendent.
- Kenny Rodrequez: Superintendent of the Grandview Missouri school district since 2016.
- Jason Glass: A Kentucky education commissioner since 2020.
- Robert Taylor: A former candidate for Mississippi’s state school superintendent and high-ranking educator in the state.
The board will choose its preferred candidate, perform a final reference check, and negotiate a new contract by July 1.
The next Baltimore County Board of Education meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 16.
Patch was unable to independently verify the names of the candidates.
