Pinellas School Board gives high marks to board attorney



Frankly, we missed the Pinellas School Board's evaluation of board attorney Jim Robinson when it came out back in September. But since the board and Robinson briefly discussed it at Tuesday's workshop, it's still sorta fresh -- and even if it's not, it's still worth sharing with readers.

Bottom line: The board gave Robinson very high marks. You can read the evaluation here. You can read Robinson's self-improvement plan here.

At Tuesday's workshop, Robinson handed out this chart, which shows how much the district has spent in recent years on outside counsel. Both lawsuits mentioned in the note below the chart -- Crowley and Bradley -- relate to black students.
