MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee Board of School Directors selected an interim superintendent Thursday.
According to a press release, veteran MPS administrator Dr. Keith Posley will serve as the interim superintendent beginning May 21.
Posley currently serves as the district’s chief school administration officer.
The Milwaukee Teachers' Education Association Vice President Amy Mizialko sent CBS 58 this statement:
"We welcome change in MPS Administration because this budget shows that Dr. Driver was operating from a mindset of despair. We need leadership from administration and our school board that will inspire aspiration and hope. On Tuesday, over 1,200 parents, educators, students, and community members packed Central Office in support of keeping budget cuts as far away from the classroom as possible. We hope that Dr. Keith Posley will work together with MTEA to move MPS forward. No matter what, the members of the MTEA will always fight for a just budget that puts students first.”
