Corrected: An earlier version of this brief gave the wrong current positions for Kevin Maxwell and Michele Taylor.

AASA, the School Superintendents Association, last week announced the finalists for the 2014 National Superintendent of the Year.

The finalists are Alberto Carvalho, the superintendent of the Miami-Dade County district in Florida; Terry Grier, the superintendent in Houston; Kevin Maxwell, who was selected for his leadership of the Anne Arundel County school system in Maryland, and is currently the schools chief in Prince George’s County, Md.; and Michele Taylor, the superintendent in Calhoun, Ga. The national winner will be announced at AASA’s annual conference next month.

Miami-Dade won the Broad Prize for Urban Education in 2012, and Houston won that award last year.
