In the wake of the departure of Worcester Public Schools Superintendent Melinda J. Boone, the city is planning a nationwide search to identify and screen candidates to replace her on a full-time basis.

On Thursday, Oct. 15, by a vote of 4-3, the School Committee chose Chief Academic Officer Marco Rodrigues as the interim superintendent. Rodrigues will begin the interim job after Boone leaves at the end of November.

The split vote was the result of three members of the School Committee, Dianna Biancheria, John Monfredo and Brian O’Connell, supporting current South High Community School Principal Maureen Binienda for the interim job.
