Members of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development have elected Raymond J. McNulty as their new president. Mr. McNulty, 51, has been the state education commissioner in Vermont since December 2001. He plans to leave that post next month to become the education program director at the Seattle-based Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Mr. McNulty began serving his one-year term as ASCD president this month. The Alexandria, Va.-based association provides professional development and curriculum and leadership information to 160,000 educators in 135 countries.

Rossi Ray-Taylor is the new executive director of the Minority Student Achievement Network. Ms. Ray-Taylor, 50, the superintendent of the 17,800-student Ann Arbor schools in Michigan before taking up the new post March 1, succeeds Allan Alson, the president of the network’s governing board.

The Evanston, Ill.-based coalition of 15 school districts in 10 states researches the reasons behind and ways to eliminate achievement gaps in public schools. Ms. Ray-Taylor will work with the network from Ann Arbor.

John R. Porter Jr. has been named the superintendent of the 5,400-student Ridgewood school district in New Jersey. Mr. Porter, 56, replaces Frederick Stokley, who retired last June after 15 years with the district.

He was formerly the director of high school design at the Washington-based National Center on Education and the Economy, where he supervised the implementation of standards-based reform, curriculum, and design in 30 high schools. Mr. Porter has signed a five-year contract to serve in the $175,000-a-year position.
