Board members unanimously cast their votes for Dr. Brown during a special called meeting Friday, April 8, 2022. The Board and Dr. Brown will now enter contract negotiations before a formal appointment to the position.
“We are so excited to have an educational leader of this caliber at the helm as we enter this crucial period in the history of MPS,” MCBOE President Clare Weil said. “We are proud of the progress we have made, but we know there is so much more to be accomplished. I feel extremely confident having Dr. Brown as the person leading us on this journey.”
Dr. Brown comes to Montgomery from Reynoldsburg City Schools in Ohio, where he has served as superintendent. He also has served as visiting professor at The Ohio State University, deputy superintendent and director of Human Resources at Cuyahoga Falls City Schools in Ohio, regional vice president of Mosaica Education Inc., and associate director of ROSWorks. He also has been a principal and an associate superintendent. He earned his doctorate from The Ohio State University, master’s in Educational Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University, and bachelor’s from James Madison University.
This announcement is the culmination of a process that included a nationwide search by the Alabama Association of School Boards. After a period of public input, the AASB delivered a list of five finalists to the board.
Dr. Brown will replace Dr. Ann Roy Moore, who was hired as superintendent in 2018. During her time at MPS, Dr. Moore led the district out from under state intervention and restored it to full accreditation. She has overseen improvements in many areas, including finance and child nutrition, and has guided MPS as it begins to implement a Capital Improvement Plan.
