Craig Dowling, Harris County's new school superintendent, will begin his first official day of work tomorrow, July 1.
Dowling was chosen as superintendent by a unanimous school board vote in May. The 5,000-student system has been without a permanent leader since former superintendent Susan Andrews left in February to lead the Muscogee County School District.
Dowling comes from Rockdale County Schools, where he has been the assistant superintendent for support services for four years. He has also been principal of two schools during his 12 years in Rockdale, and spent three years as assistant superintendent for instruction.
