Pinellas board meets to talk about FADSS report and administrative reforms
A top-heavy administration. Too many schools and not enough students. A lack of communication. And a culture of conflict, competition and confusion that fails to give schools the clear and timely support they need. The Pinellas County School District is suffering from the perception of "faded glory," according to a sweeping audit released Friday that evaluated everything from staffing to support for schools to strategic planning. These are among the findings by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents.
We told you about the study here in Saturday's Tampa Bay Times. Today, key department heads are gathered to hear for a special workshop called by the board and Superintendent John Stewart. Staff is also video taping the meeting so that those in the district will be able to see what happened for themselves.
