Baltimore City Public Schools CEO Andrés Alonso will be leaving at the end of the school year, officials confirmed today.
Alonso steps down after leading the city school system for six years. Chief of staff Tisha Edwards will serve as an interim CEO through the next school year while the Baltimore City School Board searches for a permanent successor, according to reporting Monday morning in The Washington Post.
Schools spokeswoman Edie House-Foster confirmed Alonso’s departure. School officials said Alonso is leaving to return to New Jersey, take care of his aging parents, and accept a professorship at Harvard University.
