On Thursday night, by a vote of 4-3, the School Committee named Marco Rodrigues the interim superintendent of the Worcester Public Schools.

Rodrigues, WPS chief academic officer, will replace Melinda J. Boone, whom the School Committee earlier Thursday night voted to let out of her contract on Nov. 30 to begin as superintendent of the Norfolk, Virginia, schools.

Rodrigues will be interim superintendent for the remainder of the school year. He will receive a 15 percent pay raise and not be precluded from applying for the permanent position.
