Boston School committed voted 4-3 for Mary Skipper to become district’s next superintendent – Boston 25 News



BOSTON — The Boston School Committee has chosen Mary Skipper, the superintendent of a neighboring city, to be the next superintendent of the Boston Public Schools district.

The committee voted 4-3 in favor of Skipper, Superintendent of Somerville Public Schools, over Dr. Tommy Welch, a regional superintendent within Boston Public Schools, during a virtual meeting Wednesday night.

Skipper, a Dorchester resident and mother, joined SPS in July of 2015 following an outstanding career at Boston Public Schools and quickly made her mark in Somerville as an innovative and visionary thinker, a passionate advocate for all youth, and a strategic systems builder whose approach includes leveraging community resources to support students.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in English and Latin from Tufts University, a Master’s in Education Policy from Harvard and a Master’s in Education Leadership from Columbia Teachers College.
