Joseph P. Keeney has been appointed the president of the charter schools division of Edison Schools Inc.

Mr. Keeney, 41, who has served as a senior executive in Edison’s development division since 1997, succeeds Floyd H. Flake, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, who left Edison to serve a one-year term as the president of Wilberforce University in Wilberforce, Ohio.

The New York City-based Edison Schools is the nation’s largest for-profit manager of public schools, serving approximately 80,000 students in 150 public schools in more than 20 states. Roughly a third of those are charter schools that educate about 24,000 students in 14 states.

Anna G. Dodson, a member of the Norfolk, Va., school board, has been elected the chairwoman of the board of directors of the Council of the Great City Schools.

Ms. Dodson will serve in that office until June 30 of next year. She currently is the vice chairwoman of the Norfolk school board.

The Washington-based Council of the Great City Schools represents 58 of the nation’s largest urban school systems.

The members of the Association of School Business Officials International have elected John W. Frombach as their vice president.

Mr. Frombach, 55, who starts his one-year term in January, succeeds William R. Fellmy, who will be serving as president-elect for the same term.

Currently the director of services for the 6,700-student Baldwin-Whitehall school district in suburban Pittsburgh, Mr. Frombach also is an adjunct professor at Carlow College in Pittsburgh.

The Reston, Va.-based ASBO is a professional association of more than 6,000 members that provides programs and services to help schools build effective business-management practices.
