Proposal to appoint superintendents is withdrawn

-A A +A

By Lori Prevatt, Citizen Correspondent

A proposal to appoint school superintendents by school boards instead of by popular vote in the general election was withdrawn from consideration by the Constitution Revision Commission.

CRC Chairwoman Erika Donalds filed the proposal in October 2017. She withdrew the plan March 22. The amendment to the state constitution requiring district school boards to appoint superintendents would have taken effect Nov. 17, 2020, had it won public approval in November.

Levy County Superintendent of Schools Jeff Edison shared an email from the Small County Coalition of Florida. The organization issued a cautionary note about the possibility of portions of the withdrawn proposal being used to amend future revisions.

“We have seen this committee take some very contradictory actions and we are not sure the proposal is dead,” coalition consultant Chris Doolin stated in the email.

He wrote that for now, Florida citizens have the final say.
