Tommy Chang, an instructional superintendent in the Los Angeles district, has been tapped as the superintendent of the Boston schools, capping off a nearly two-year search for a new schools chief.

He assumes his new post July 1.

In Los Angeles, Mr. Chang runs the Intensive Support and Innovation Center, where he oversees 135 of the district’s low-performing and pilot schools. His experience spans both regular public and charter schools—from teaching biology in Compton, Calif., to serving as a principal of a charter school in Venice, Calif.
