Former Pinellas superintendent John Stewart not done yet

Looks like he'll be postponing his lazy days again.

The Ledger reports that Stewart is headed to the Polk school district, where he served three terms as superintendent, to take the reins as interim leader following Sherrie Nickell's departure. He's to stick around long enough to let the School Board search for a permanent superintendent.

"John would be a perfect fit," board member Frank O'Reilly said. "He will increase morale, which has gone down."
