Interim Seattle Public Schools head won't seek job

Dec 16, 2011

The interim head of Seattle Public Schools says she doesn't want the job permanently.

Susan Enfield made the surprise announcement Friday in a letter to staff and community members.

Enfield was appointed to the position of interim superintendent in March after the previous schools boss, Maria Goodloe-Johnson, was ousted following a financial scandal.

Enfield's contract ends in June. She wished the Seattle School Board well in their search for a new superintendent and said she would work to ensure a smooth transition.
