Renee Foose tells staff she will resign

Well it looks like the “Cut Foose Loose” campaign finally succeeded. As reported by the Baltimore Sun today:

Embattled Howard County schools superintendent Renee Foose has told her executive staff and some principals that she will resign today, sources told The Baltimore Sun Tuesday. The Howard County school board has scheduled a closed meeting for 4 p.m.

Foose could not immediately be reached for comment. Her resignation would represent a victory for her critics on the school board who have called for new leadership.

A tense power struggle has emerged in recent months between the fifth-year superintendent and the new majority that took control of the board in December. The rival sides have been locked in a costly lawsuit that has threatened to disrupt Maryland’s sixth-largest school system, a district with 76 schools and 55,000 students that consistently ranks among the best in the nation.

I am guessing we will find out more after the 4:00pm closed meeting today.

There will be many celebrating this news…I for one am most hopeful that we now get a good working relationship between the school system and the Board of Education here in Howard County.
