Pinellas is looking for turnaround principals



The Pinellas County School District is looking for successful turnaround principals to "lead a select number of schools" in the St. Petersburg area.

A job advertisement posted on the district's website says that the county is seeking "transformational" leaders and is "developing a pool of highly driven and successful elementary and middle school principals." No major principal changes have been announced yet this spring, although that often happens in May. District leaders have talked about developing a pool of high-quality teachers, too, to make it easier to fill vacancies in low-performing schools that struggle with teacher turnover.

The job advertisement is posted below. If you're interested in job opportunities at the school district, visit their website.
