During the middle of a school board meeting on Feb. 23, school board member Dr. Tina Calderone said there was not enough discussion on who should be the next superintendent.

She said the vote on Feb. 9 lacked context. In a 3-2 vote, the board voted to revoke the decision on the next superintendent.

“We always say our district works because we are family,” Calderone said.

A special school board meeting will be held at a future date to announce the next superintendent.


The Seminole County School Board announced Chad Farnsworth will be the next superintendent of the district.

The announcement came after Farnsworth received three votes and SCPS attorney Serita D. Beamon received two votes during a school board meeting on Tuesday.
