WASHINGTON (AP) - The educator serving as interim chancellor of D.C. Public Schools wants the job permanently.

John Davis tells The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/2e1RcqZ ) that he has formally applied to keep the job. He took over as interim chancellor on Oct. 1, when Kaya Henderson stepped down.

Davis says the schools have great momentum going and he wants to continue that progress.

Davis has been with D.C. schools for nine years. He began his career in education as a middle school math teacher in Baltimore.

Mayor Muriel Bowser says she hopes to name the next chancellor by the end the month.
