Action on Lacoochee Elementary principal to come "sooner rather than later"



Top Pasco County school district administrators completed their climate study at Lacoochee Elementary School on Tuesday, and are putting together their recommendations for superintendent Heather Fiorentino to take action.

Fiorentino told the Gradebook that she had heard some but not all of the information gathered from nearly a week of interviews and observations. Once she gets the rest of the details, Fiorentino said, she'll make a decision whether Marler will return to Lacoochee. Asked for a time frame, she said, "Sooner rather than later."

Some parents have rallied on Marler's behalf since Fiorentino removed her last week Monday amid complaints about her leadership. The nature of the concerns has not been released yet. Marler has not responded to requests for interviews.
