Welcome Ms. Crowder to City Schools.

When does MSDE board vet/appoint candidates for the vacant seat of Brian Morris City school system board of commissioners. "Oh I forgot" the mayor is on trial for other larger priorities.

Yipee, another import!

I hope that Baltimore City has better luck with hiring effective and learned people to move the system forward....the county has had no such luck. Where are these people coming from?????

Come on,folks! You are not an expert unless you come from out of town! However,HR has been a mess forever so maybe this is a good move? Time will tell.

Baltimore City school board has appointed Shawn Y. Crowder as the new Chief of Human resources.I hope that he might do well job before the person has done.

Congratulations to Shawn. Speaking as a former peer, she is a dynamic proven leader with a rich history in leading progressive changes in school districts! B'more, GET READY!
