SANDY — The Canyons Board of Education announced Tuesday that Ginger Rhode will serve as interim superintendent while a search is conducted to replace David S. Doty, who resigned last week to become the leader of a Utah-based education reform firm.
Doty's last day in Canyons will be June 30. The vote to appoint Rhode was unanimous.
Rhode, who has served as Canyons' deputy superintendent for student achievement and the chief academic officer since November 2008, will take helm of the district on July 1.
The school board is moving forward with plans for a nationwide search for a new superintendent.
Rhode holds a doctorate in special education from Utah State University and is a published author of books on behavior management, including "The Tough Kid Toolbox."
A former special education teacher and principal, she has worked as Davis School District's director of federal and state programs and coordinator of English as a second language programs, and has extensive experience in school reform and improvement efforts.
Rhode has served as state and federal compliance officer and special education coordinator for the Utah State Office of Education and is an adjunct professor in the University of Utah's educational psychology department.
