Broward School Board To Consider Limiting Requests To Fire Superintendent

Jun 18, 2019

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.
