Colleye named interim state superintendent
Mayor Fenty announced this afternoon that OSSE's general counsel would serve as interim state superintendent for education. Beth Colleye, formerly an attorney at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr, replaces Kerri L. Briggs, who announced her resignation Thursday.
In a statement, Fenty said Colleye had helped manage successful legal strategies to get the District out of special education class-action lawsuits. She also helped draft and implement compliance policies, state-level standards and legal opinions central to education reforms.
