The Frederick County School Board has announced the appointment of Doctor Georg C. Hummer as the next Superintendent of Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS).

Hummer brings over 18 years of experience in public education to the position.

Hummer will leave his position as chief Student Support Services Officer at Stafford County Public Schools and take over as FCPS’s Superintendent on January 30.

The new Superintendent commented that he hopes to get started right away and plans to connect with various stakeholders in order to gain a better understanding of what is valued within the community and the school division.

On his first morning on the job Hummer plans to greet students and interact with staff and engage in a listening tour in order to hear the perspectives of students, parents, staff and members of the community.

The relationships and spirit Hummer intends to build as Superintendent will be critical to working together to move the school division forward.

Hummer is Frederick County’s 15 Superintendent of Schools.
