Gray: No DCPS chancellor appointment imminent
Mayor-elect Vincent C. Gray (D) told us Wednesday night that he is impressed by interim D.C. schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson but that he is not on the verge of naming her or anyone else to the position permanently.
Gray, who was at The Post for an event honoring some of its employees, said that there is a "process" for an appointment under the system of mayoral control of schools and that he would follow it.
"I won't lie to you," he said. "I really like Kaya."
Henderson served as the top deputy under Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, then moved up to the interim leadership post after Rhee resigned in October.
Among other positions Gray will fill in his incoming administration are a deputy mayor for education and a state superintendent of education.
