Pinellas School Board formally sets meeting on Julie Janssen's employment

It's official: The Pinellas County School board will hold a special meeting Aug. 23 to discuss the future of superintendent Julie Janssen.

In fact, the only item on the agenda for the 10 a.m. meeting is "the superintendent's employment," said School Board administrative assistant Debbie Beaty.

The meeting replaces a scheduled workshop about Janssen's job performance. The change means the board can vote on Janssen's employment. No formal votes can be taken at a workshop.

Janssen, hired by the board in 2008 to replace Clayton Wilcox, has come under fire in the past year for the way she has handled district communications, personnel and professional development issues.

Janssen makes about $200,000 a year plus a $10,800 car allowance and $3,000 communications allowance.

Her contract, which runs through Sept. 30, 2013, states that the board can terminate her contract with or without cause, but may be required to pay her a year's salary and benefits depending on the circumstances.

The meeting will be at district headquarters, 301 Fourth St. SW in Largo.

    The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least four of President Trump's golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.

    A framed copy of Time magazine, dated March 1, 2009, that hangs in at least four of President Donald Trump's golf clubs, from South Florida to Scotland, is fake. There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time. The real March 2, 2009, issue of Time featured actor Kate Winslet on the cover. But the issue makes no mention of Trump.
