Two seek top Garrett schools’ job

Janet Wilson, Jeremy Raley to visit with students, staff, community leaders

— OAKLAND — One of Allegany County’s top public school administrators is a finalist for the superintendent’s job in Garrett County, the Garrett County Board of Education announced late Wednesday afternoon.

Janet Wilson, chief academic officer for ACPS since 2010, is one of two finalists for the position, which has been filled by an interim superintendent since Wendell Teets unexpectedly retired last summer.

The second finalist is Jeremy Raley, a 1992 graduate of Fort Hill High School, who works as assistant superintendent for administration and finance for Shenandoah County Public Schools in Virginia.

In the coming weeks, each finalist will be scheduled to meet with community leaders, teachers, support staff, media, elected officials and administrators, a BOE press release said. Each finalist is to spend a day touring the county, visiting schools and eating lunch with students.

The BOE plans to host a dinner for each candidate following their tours.

Wilson, who has worked as an educator for almost 30 years, has a doctorate from Notre Dame University of Maryland in educational leadership for changing populations. She has a bachelor’s and two master’s degrees from Frostburg State University.

Raley has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Virginia, and earned a doctorate in organizational leadership from Shenandoah University in August 2011.

Garrett County’s search for a new superintendent began last fall and is being coordinated by the Maryland Association fo Board of Educations.

Interim Superintendent Sue Waggoner, who was planning to retire when Teets unexpectedly stepped down last June, did not apply for the position.
