BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland’s State Board of Education will take action on the next superintendent of schools.

The board is set to take official action on the selection of Delaware Secretary of Education Lillian Lowery at its meeting on Tuesday. Gov. Martin O’Malley is expected to speak at the meeting.

Lowery has been Delaware’s secretary of education since 2009, and is known for facilitating a strategic planning and grant application process that led to Delaware being the first state to be awarded the federal Race to the Top grant.

Lowery will replace interim State Superintendent Bernard Sadusky, who has served in the post since July. He replaced Nancy Grasmick, who retired last year after 20 years as superintendent.

Lowery is set to start July 1.
