Boston School Committee reelects chairman, vice chairman

The Boston School Committee, which is embarking on a search for a new superintendent, has unanimously reelected its chairman and vice chairman.

Michael O’Neill will continue to lead the board for a second year. O’Neill, a Charlestown resident and a graduate of the Boston public schools, works in the financial-services industry. He has served on the committee since 2008.

“We have a lot of work in front of us,” O’Neill said in a statement. “I appreciate the confidence shown by the members in voting me to another term. We applaud Mayor [Martin] Walsh’s comments on education and look forward to working with him as his team to continue to improve the educational opportunities for all students in every corner of the city.”

Claudio Martinez was reelected vice chairman of the committee. Martinez, a Jamaica Plain resident and executive director of the Hyde Square Task Force, has also served since 2008.

In other moves on six-member council, Walsh has reappointed Hardin L.K. Coleman, dean of Boston’s University’s College of Education, to fill the seat formerly held by John Barros, who stepped down to run for mayor.

Walsh also replaced Mary Tamer — who was a vocal supporter of unsuccessful mayoral candidate John Connolly — with Michael Loconto, a labor relations attorney with a child in the school system.
