Alberto Carvalho, the schools chief in the Miami-Dade County district in Florida, last week was named superintendent of the year.

The announcement came during the annual conference of the School Superintendents Association, or AASA.

Mr. Carvalho has been the 345,000-student district’s leader since 2008 and also serves as principal of two schools. Miami-Dade won the Broad Prize for Urban Education last year.

Other superintendent-of-the-year finalists were Terry Grier, Houston’s superintendent; Kevin Maxwell, who heads up the Prince George’s County school system in Maryland, but was selected for his leadership of neighboring Anne Arundel County schools; and Michele Taylor, the superintendent of the small city district in Calhoun, Ga.

All four finalists were selected as winners in their individual state contests for superintendent of the year.
