Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Case closed



HeatherfThe Florida Elections Commission has dismissed as legally insufficient an electioneering complaint against Pasco schools superintendent Heather Fiorentino.

That doesn't mean the West Pasco Board of Realtors, which filed the complaint alleging the superintendent misused district resources to campaign against Amendment 1 in January, thinks it was wrong.

And with more tax-related referendums coming to voters later this year, the group will continue to watch whether Fiorentino uses school district time and materials on those issues, said Greg Armstrong, West Pasco Board of Realtors president.

"If it were to happen again, maybe we will take the same position," Armstrong said.

Fiorentino declined to comment until she receives official word from the commission that the case is over.
