Ohio has a new state schools superintendent.
Following a national search, the state Board of Education on Tuesday selected Deborah Delisle, who is superintendent of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District. The 55-year-old Delisle will paid a salary of $194,500 a year.
The other finalist was Catherine Maple Cross, a deputy education secretary in New Mexico.
Current state superintendent Susan Tave Zelman’s last day after nine years is Oct. 31.
She announced in May that she would resign, after Gov. Ted Strickland stated his intent to replace her with an education chief accountable to him instead of the state board.
