The New York Board of Regents
Chancellor Betty A. Rosa is now fi lling
in as the state’s interim Department
of Education Commissioner.
Rosa resigned from her post on
the Board of Regents on Monday to
take over for current interim commissioner
Shannon Tahoe before she
steps down on Aug. 13.
Rosa will now direct the state education
department during one of the
most challenging times in its history
as school systems across New York
prepare to navigate a mix of in-person
and remote learning models during
the upcoming fall semester.
“This has been an incredibly diffi -
cult decision, as I love my work on the
Board of Regents, but I’m confi dent
that it is the right one to ensure the
stability that we need for our students
during this unprecedented time,”
Rosa said in a statement. “It is imperative
that the Department continues
its important work without interruption,
and I am dedicated to providing
that constancy as Interim Commissioner.
I want to thank Shannon
Tahoe for her leadership and steady
hand through one of our most challenging
times. The Department is
well positioned to move forward with
the Board’s priorities and to ensure
that our students and educators can
resume teaching and learning safely
When Tahoe announced her resignation
last month, she became the
third commissioner to abandon the
post over the last year. Tahoe took
over the position after interim commissioner
Beth Berlin left in mid-
November last year two months after
acting commissioner MaryEllen Elia
Board of Regents Vice Chancellor
T. Andrew Brown will take over
as chancellor and lead the board.
The search for a permanent Commissioner
of Education and President
of the University of the State of New
York has been extended with an application
deadline of Oct. 1.
