Broward County School District Superintendent Robert Runcie and school board members listen to public comment during a meeting on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, where a vote will be held to decide if he is retained as Superintendent.

Broward School Board members could try to fire the superintendent no more than twice a year under a proposal scheduled to be discussed Tuesday.

The policy, drafted by district staff, refers to all requests made directly by School Board members instead of the superintendent, reports the Sun Sentinel.

Board member Lori Alhadeff asked the board March 5 to fire Superintendent Robert Runcie, citing concerns over security, construction delays and issues in special education. The request failed 6 to 3, with Alhadeff being joined by Nora Rupert and Robin Bartleman.
