Head of D.C.'s Catholic schools to step down
The head of Washington’s Catholic schools during a tumultuous period in their history announced Wednesday that she will step down in June to lead a center at Boston College.
Patricia Weitzel-O’Neill has been superintendent of the 28,600-student school system of the Archdiocese of Washington since 2002, which has schools in the District and Maryland. She presided over the schools during the creation of the D.C. voucher program and the conversion of seven inner-city Catholic schools to public charter schools. She will head the Center for Catholic Education at Boston College’s education school.
“I look forward to this new opportunity to serve at the national level,” she said in a statement.
