Vote Wednesday between Skipper and Welch as Boston Public Schools’ next superintendent

The Boston school board is scheduled to vote Wednesday on who will become the district’s next superintendent. Outgoing Boston Superintendent Brenda Cassellius announced in February that she would step down at the end of the school year. The committee will select either Mary Skipper, current Superintendent of Somerville Public Schools, or Tommy Welch, current Region 1 School Superintendent for Boston Public Schools. Welch, an East Boston resident, joined BPS in 2015. Previously, he was the founding principal of a middle school and later a high school in the South Central neighborhood of Los Angeles. Welch is a graduate of Occidental College and the University of California, Los Angeles, and received his Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Boston College. Skipper, a Dorchester resident and mother of three, joined Somerville Public Schools in 2015 after a career at BPS that included time as superintendent of the high school system. During her time with BPS, she helped launch TechBoston Academy and served as the school’s founding principal. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English and Latin from Tufts University, a master’s degree in educational policy from Harvard, and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Columbia Teachers College. The vote comes two days after an agreement between the district and the state to make improvements in several key areas. As part of the seven-page agreement, Boston promises to improve areas such as school safety, special education services, bus transportation and English language learning. An independent auditor will monitor the district’s progress. And the state will inject additional funding of $10 million. Wednesday’s virtual meeting began at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
