Renee Foose is the deputy superintendent for Baltimore County Public Schools.
(UPDATED) Renee Foose, a deputy superindentent for Baltimore County Public Schools, is a finalist for superintendent positions in Florida and Michigan.
According to the The Voice newspaper in Michigan, the Board of Education for L'Anse Creuse Public Schools released the names of the three finalists for the superintendent position on Wednesday. The school district serves several townships in Michigan, with 10 elementary schools, four middle schools and three high schools, according to the school system's website.
The Orlando Sentinel also reported this week that Foose is one of six finalists for the superintendent of Orange County Public Schools in Florida. The Baltimore Sun reported last month that Foose had applied.
Foose was hired by Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Joe A. Hairston, who is serving out the final year of his contract.
The Baltimore County Board of Education is searching for Hairston's replacement and has not said whether it will release the names of the three final candidates when it gets to that stage in the process.
Foose, whose salary was released by the school system after pressed by news organizations, including Patch, makes $214,000 annually. Prior to coming to Baltimore County in the spring of 2011, Foose was an associate superintendent in Montgomery County Public Schools.
The Baltimore Sun has reported that Foose's salary is the second highest for a person in that position in the state.
