Indianapolis schools superintendent picked for DC Public Schools chancellor

DC Public Schools has its new chancellor.

On Monday, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that she has selected Indianapolis Public Schools superintendent Lewis Ferebee as the new DCPS chancellor.

Ferebee succeeds former chancellor Antwan Wilson - who resigned amid mounting pressure brought on by a school lottery scandal.

Ferebee began his work with the Indianapolis Public Schools in September 2013, after serving the previous three years as Chief of Staff for Durham Public Schools.

Prior to this, the 16-year education veteran served as Regional Superintendent for Guilford County Schools in North Carolina where he also worked as an instructional improvement officer and school principal.
