Employees give superintendent Julie Janssen high marks



Janssen II Fifty-two percent of Pinellas school district employees say superintendent Julie Janssen is providing quality leadership, according to just-posted results from the district’s annual climate survey.

A total of 7,211 school-based employees responded; 74 percent of them were classroom teachers. Fifteen percent strongly agreed and 36 percent agreed that Janssen, hired in September, is providing quality leadership. That compares to 9 percent who disagreed, 5 percent who strongly disagreed and 34 percent who said they were neutral.

Last year, 26 percent gave former superintendent Clayton Wilcox a favorable rating.
