Dr. Reginald Mayo walked out of the New Haven Board of Education building as Superintendent one final time Friday evening. The lifelong educator, who started as a substitute science teacher, worked for the city’s public schools for 40 years, and ran the district for nearly two decades.

The Board of Education is now focused on finding a replacement.

Three finalists for the position were announced this week including Dr. Dred D. Scott, Dr. Kriner Cash, and Garth Harries.

Harries, a graduate of Yale University and Stanford Law School,  is a current Assistant Superintendent in New Haven.

Dr. Scott is employed by the school system in Independence, the fourth largest city in Missouri. After working his way up from an Elementary school teacher, Dr. Scott is the current Deputy Superintendent.

Dr. Kriner Cash recently resigned after a five year term as School Superintendent in Memphis, Tennessee. Previously Dr. Kash was the Chief of Accountability for Schools in Miami, Florida.

The Board of Education will vote on the three finalists Monday evening.
