(INDIANAPOLIS) – Gov. Eric J. Holcomb today said he has appointed Dr. Lee Ann Kwiatkowski as interim executive director of the Indiana State Board of Education to replace Matt Voors, who has accepted a position outside of state government. Dr. Kwiatkowski will continue to be the governor’s senior education adviser.
“Lee Ann will serve in this dual role as we work through the legislative session. We’re fortunate to have someone with her mix of expertise and experience to lead the board’s operations,” said Gov. Holcomb.
Dr. Kwiatkowski was named senior education adviser to Gov. Holcomb in May 2018. She previously served as chief of staff to Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Jennifer McCormick. Before that, she was a principal and assistant superintendent for M.S.D. Warren Township. From 2005 to 2011, she worked for the Indiana Department of Education, leading Title I, differentiated learning and school turnaround efforts. She began her career in education in 1984 as a classroom teacher and literacy facilitator for Indianapolis Public Schools.
The board will review the governor’s appointment during its February 6 business meeting.
