The Interagency Commission on School Construction (IAC) has a position available for an Executive Director. The Commission is an independent statutory body composed of nine members, including: the State Superintendent of schools, the Secretary of the Department of General Services, the Secretary of the Maryland Department of Planning, two public members appointed by the Governor, two public members appointed by the President of the Senate, and two public members appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

This is an Executive Appointment position which serves at the will of the IAC.

This position serves as Executive Director to the IAC. The Executive Director leads strategic planning and policy development, high-level legislative communication, and stakeholder engagement on behalf of the IAC. The Executive Director directs IAC efforts, leveraging State funding to promote innovative local solutions and ensure a safe, healthy, and educationally sufficient learning environment for every public school student in Maryland. The position is responsible for the investment of more than $1 billion in State school construction funding annually, which is leveraged by 24 Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and County governments and ultimately results in more than $4 billion per year in State and local funding that is subject to review and approval by the Commission. This position leads and develops best practices for the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of Maryland’s school facility portfolio with an asset value exceeding $57 billion. The Executive Director implements programs and processes to efficiently and effectively meet stakeholder expectations and the needs of almost 1 million school children. The Executive Director drives technical support to 24 LEAs and the Maryland School for the Blind, including management and oversight of the State’s first comparable assessment of the physical condition and educational sufficiency of each of the State’s approximately 1,400 school facilities.
