SEATTLE -- Former Seattle School Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson died Wednesday in Detroit at the age of 55.
A friend and colleague who directs the Council of the Great City Schools, Michael Casserly, told The Seattle Times that she was recently hospitalized with cancer.
Goodloe-Johnson led the Seattle School District for nearly four years until she was fired in March 2011 in a financial scandal involving a small-business contracting program. She later took a job with a Detroit school district.
Goodloe-Johnson previously headed the Charleston County School District in South Carolina.
One of her accomplishments in Seattle was negotiating a teachers' contract that included student performance in job evaluations.
The Seattle School District said she improved student academic achievement. The district extended condolences to her husband, Bruce, and daughter, Maya.
