A former Queen Anne’s County Public Schools superintendent was named interim superintendent of the Maryland State Department of Education on Thursday.
Mr. Sadusky served as superintendent of the Queen Anne’s school system from 1994 to 2007. He retired and joined the staff at the Maryland State Department of Education, serving as policy liaison with local school systems.
He has spent more than 30 years as an administrator and teacher in Queen Anne’s County.
“He understands education from the local system perspective and has spent a career helping strengthen student performance,” she said.
Mrs. Grasmick announced her intention to retire in April after nearly 20 years on the job. She currently ranks as the nation’s longest-serving appointed state schools’ chief.
Mr. Sadusky received his bachelor’s degree in biology from King’s College in Pennsylvania. He holds a master’s degree in psychology from Washington College and a doctorate in educational administration from Nova-Southeastern University. He was Maryland’s superintendent of the year in 2007.
