Lee Ann Kwiatkowski was named interim executive director of the Indiana State Board of Education.
She replaces Matt Voors who resigned from the post for a role outside state government, according to a statement from Gov. Eric Holcomb’s office. 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,” Holcomb said. “We’re fortunate to have someone with her mix of expertise and experience to lead the board’s operations.”
Kwiatkowski was named senior education adviser to Holcomb in May 2018. She previously served as chief of staff to Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick. Before that, she was a principal and assistant superintendent for M.S.D. Warren Township.
From 2005 to 2011, Kwiatkowski 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.
