Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Where in the world is Cathi Martin?

Martin Pasco School Board member Cathi Martin was supposed to attend Ridgewood High School's graduation on Friday night.

She didn't show up. Didn't even call.

Her explanation? We can't tell you. She hasn't returned calls.

This might not be news if it were some other board member. But Martin is the one who recommitted herself to "fulfilling the duties of my elected position" less than two months ago, rescinding her weeks-old announcement that she would resign.

She planned to quit amid calls for her removal, calls that were prompted by her chronic absences from board meetings and district activities.

Maybe she'll show up at tomorrow's board meeting to explain. Stay tuned.
