    Boston School Committee names John McDonough interim superintendent

    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.
