Montgomery County Schools Chief’s Tenure In Doubt

The future of Montgomery County Schools Superintendent Joshua P. Starr appeared to be in doubt as the eight-member Board of Education prepared for a Wednesday executive session to discuss renewal of his contract, two county officials with direct knowledge of board deliberations said Tuesday evening.

The two officials said that four board members are opposed to renewing the contract of Starr, 45, the former Stamford, Conn., schools superintendent who has led the 154,000-student system since July 2011. Starr needs at least a five-member majority to keep his job.
