The Boston School Committee offered the interim superintendent post Wednesday to John McDonough, the School Department’s chief financial officer. The offer, made in a 5-to-0 vote, is contingent on negotiating terms of a contract and conducting a background check. McDonough would start his duties this summer, after Superintendent Carol R. Johnson retires. He will oversee the department until a permanent superintendent is hired, a process expected to take up to a year.
