Arlington, VA

Mark Johnston, Arlington Public Schools Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, is retiring.

During his seven years in the position, Johnston has overseen an increase in test scores and a decrease in the achievement gap between white and minority students. He also worked to create the school system’s career advancement program for teachers, which rewarded high-quality teaching.

Johnston will officially retire on Sept. 1. No successor has been chosen, and a national search process is being planned.

In addition to Johnston, the school system is seeking a replacement for Mary Beth Chambers, who is retiring in September as the Assistant Superintendent of Finance.
