Message from the School Board Chair

  • “On behalf of the Frederick County School Board, I want to congratulate Superintendent David Sovine on his upcoming retirement from Frederick County Public Schools. Throughout Dr. Sovine’s 11 years as Superintendent in Frederick County, he has led with integrity and a singular focus of doing what is best for students. The school division has made great strides under his leadership and I’m certain he will continue to make a positive impact as the Superintendent in Washington County, Maryland. With Dr. Sovine’s retirement taking effect at the close of business on June 30, the School Board is already working to select an interim Superintendent. It is our intent to name that individual by July 1. Our focus will then shift to finding Dr. Sovine’s successor. We intend to seek input from students, parents, staff and members of the greater community as part of a thorough search process that will result in us finding the best individual to lead Frederick County Public Schools and continue to move us forward in a positive direction.”
