Familiar face to oversee transition to new Seattle schools chief

Seattle Public Schools has tapped a familiar face to oversee the transition to its next superintendent.

Bob Boesche, who temporarily stepped in as the district’s chief financial officer after last year’s financial scandal, will serve as interim deputy superintendent this summer.

“Bob has provided our district with leadership and integrity,” Interim Superintendent Susan Enfield announced in an email to staff,  “The District is lucky to have him help oversee the transition to the new Superintendent, ensuring a smooth start to the 2012-13 school year.”

Enfield is leaving in June. Her deputy, Noel Treat, announced this week he will leave in May.

Cathy Thompson, the district’s top academic officer, announced earlier today that she, too, is leaving.

Boesche, who technically retired in 2001, has served in interim school-district leadership roles in several Puget Sound school districts, including Edmonds, Shoreline, Vashon Island, Monroe and Kent.
