President Tim Daly and CEO Ariela Rozman will leave this summer. Taking their places, respectively, at what was formerly known as the New Teacher Project will be Karolyn Belcher, currently the vice president of new-teacher effectiveness at the organization, and Daniel Weisberg, a former New York City education department labor-policy chief.

Mr. Daly and Ms. Rozman plan to start an organization helping parents negotiate the increasing complexity of the public school system.
