Chancellor Frank Brogan's permanent replacement could be selected in November
Following the lead of the Board of Education -- which decided to give the interim commissioner the permanent job today, just seven weeks after her former boss stepped down -- the Board of Governors wants to move quickly to find a replacement for Chancellor Frank Brogan, who steps down at the end of the month.
The Board of Governors' search committee will meet in the next two weeks to begin the process of finding a new chancellor. If the right candidate surfaces quickly, the full board could approve a new leader on Nov. 21 at its next in-person meeting.
Mori Hosseini, the board's vice chairman and leader of the search committee, said members will start off fielding candidates without the assistance of an outside firm. The search committee will advertise for the chancellor position and consider both internal and external candidates.
