"It looks like we're going to have to eliminate 400 positions," says Montgomery County's interim schools superintendent. He'll be presiding over that challenge while the Board of Education decides how to permanently fill his position.
In Maryland, Larry Bowers has been upgraded from "acting" superintendent of Montgomery County schools to "interim" superintendent. Bowers has been serving as the acting superintendent since February when Dr. Joshua Starr resigned.
