Superintendent search update:
Members of the School Board then discussed the next steps in the Superintendent search process. School board members would like to work with the Florida School Board Association as a search firm in addition to getting input from our stakeholders in public forums and through a survey. They would also like to create an advisory committee to assist.
Next steps: School Board policies JIC will be reviewed and presented at future meetings. A future work session will be scheduled to meet with the FSBA.
