(WWBT) - The former interim superintendent and chief operating officer for Richmond Public Schools is taking a new position in Virginia.
Tommy Kranz will now serve as assistant superintendent for operations for the Montgomery County school district.
Kranz was at the forefront of creating the facilities modernization plan for RPS, which is to be funded by the recently passed meals tax increase.
The move comes after new superintendent Jason Kamras let go of multiple top cabinet members from the previous administration, including Kranz.
Kamras tweeted congratulations to Kranz on the new job.
Some advocates expressed public concern over Kranz's departure, saying RPS would lose out on his knowledge of facilities.
There has been no word yet on Kranz's replacement.
