Pinellas administrator among candidates for superintendent



A familiar face wants to be the next superintendent of Pinellas County Schools.

William Corbett, an area superintendent in Pinellas, has applied for the top job. He's been in his current role, overseeing Area 2 with 28 schools, since August 2011. Before that, he was principal of Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School for about six years. He includes letters of support from James Madden, deputy superintendent, and Michael Bessette, associate superintendent.

Deadline to apply for the position is Monday. A few other new applications have come in since our last update. They are:

William Miller: Miller has been executive director of the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators/Michigan Association of School Administrators since 2011. He was superintendent of the Washtenaw Intermediate School District in Michigan for about 12 years.

Jayne Risen Morgenthal: Risen Morgenthal has been director of a principal preparation program at Spalding University in Kentucky since 2010. She was superintendent of Elizabethtown Independent Public Schools in Kentucky for one year, 2008 to 2009.

Harry La Cava: La Cava was superintendent of Indian River County Schools from 2007 to 2011. He's been a consultant since leaving the district.

See resumes below. (Corbett's is too large to upload. We'll see about getting that fixed.) See a round-up of other candidates here.
