Pinellas County Schools interviewing for some administrative and principal jobs

The Pinellas County School District still is interviewing candidates for a few high-profile jobs.

District officials are considering applicants for area superintendent - the job opened after William Corbett was promoted to deputy superintendent - and three executive director positions. Those positions are sort of new; superintendent Mike Grego "upgraded" the directors for elementary, middle and high school education. The upgrade to executive director means the jobs pay more, making it easier to recruit qualified candidates, Grego said. 

Job advertisements also have come down for several principal jobs, including Clearwater Fundamental Middle, Blanton Elementary, Largo Middle and Plumb Elementary. Candidates also are being interviewed for those jobs, according to the district.

There also are a few schools with principals who haven't yet been reappointed for the coming year - Godfrey Watson at Campbell Park Elementary, Kim Short at Pinellas Park Elementary and Alisa Gatlin at Largo Middle. Most of the principals in the district were reappointed this month. Grego said some names also will be on the June 11 agenda.

Of Watson, Short and Gatlin, the district will only say that the "process for personnel recommendations" is underway and that more information will be available before the start of the coming school year. Gatlin has been on a leave, which is supposed to end in June.

The Gradebook has put in a public records request for the candidates for all of the positions.
