During the October 28 Board Work Session, the Queen Anne’s County Public Schools Board named Janet Pauls as acting superintendent.
Dr. Andrea Kane went on leave after an October 7 board meeting in which the panel passed a resolution expressing that Kane must explain in advance any money that would be spent from a state fund earmarked for COVID-19 relief. Kane is expected to return to the job November 17. Pauls will serve as acting superintendent until Kane returns from leave.
Ms. Pauls career with our school system began as a teacher at Stevensville Middle School in 1977 teaching 5th, 7th, and 8th grade. Since then she has served as interim assistant superintendent, as well as teacher specialist, supervisor of instruction, principal at two schools, and program director of teacher leadership development. She retired from QACPS in June 2020.
Pauls will attend her first Board of Education Meeting on November 4, 2020.
