Carol R. Johnson, the superintendent of Boston's schools since 2009, was awarded the Richard R. Green award at the Council of the Great City Schools conference in Indianapolis this month. She will receive a $10,000 scholarship to award to a Boston student or a student from her alma mater.

The award alternates between a superintendent and a school board member each year. Last year's winner was Candy Olson, a member of the board in Hillsborough County, Fla. The last superintendent to win was Arlene Ackerman, then in Philadelphia.

Ms. Johnson said the award came as a particular honor, as Richard R. Green was the superintendent in Minneapolis during part of her 30-year tenure there. She left the superintendent's post in that district in 2003.
