Dr. Adams will replace Brenda Hill, who did not run for re-election.
Dr. Adams previous' position as vice president of the board will be replaced by Bob Vasquez.
The board has approved a $2.2 million plan in December to build football stadiums for Scott and Woodward high Schools. Neither school has a stadium, and had to play their games at other schoolsâ?? fields.
Each school received $1.1 million to fund the construction, using funds from a 2004 bond. School officials say the money could allow both stadiums to use artificial turf for their fields. The anticipated completion date is set for 2014-2015 school year.
Dr. Romules Durant agreed to a multi-year contract in December to serve as Toledo Public Schools Superintendent until 2018.
