"It's quite exciting and an honor to have the board's confidence to provide continuity for the department while we wait for a new commissioner,'' Coleman said Wednesday.

Coleman joined the department in 1987 as a consultant in the kindergarten and the primary grades. He received his bachelor's degree from Tuskegee Institute and two master's degrees from the Teachers College at Columbia University.
