Superintendent Kimberly Hill today announced the appointment of Steven Roberts as the Director of Accountability for Charles County Public Schools (CCPS).
Roberts, principal at Maurice J. McDonough High School, started his career with CCPS in 1997 as a mathematics teacher at Westlake High School. He worked at Westlake until 2011 and served as the school’s varsity wrestling coach, algebra team leader, mathematics department chair and school testing coordinator.
Between 2011 and 2016, Roberts worked as a vice principal at McDonough and North Point High School. He has served as McDonough’s principal since 2016.
Roberts holds a master of science in curriculum and instruction with an Admin 1 from McDaniel College and a bachelor of science in secondary education mathematics from the University of Maryland, College Park.
Roberts will begin as director of accountability on Jan. 25. Linda Gill, executive director of schools, will serve as interim principal at McDonough during the transition.
Roberts replaces longtime director of accountability, Cliff Eichel, who retired in December. Eichel began his CCPS career as a teacher at Thomas Stone High School in 1978 and was promoted to director of research and assessment — later renamed director of accountability — in 2004. Eichel retired in December.
