Orange County asking residents to help find next superintendent of schools

Orange County Public School officials are asking residents across the county to share feedback in the selection of the next superintendent.

The district will host a series of forums beginning tonight from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Freedom High School.

The new official will replace Superintendent Barbara Jenkins, who is retiring after ten years leading the district.

The School Board of Orange County, working with the Florida School Boards Association, hopes the forums will serve as an inclusive selection process where all stakeholders can have meaningful input in selecting the next superintendent.

The forums will focus on the strengths of Orange County Public Schools, the critical needs and challenges facing Orange County Public Schools, and the personal qualities and professional experience needed by the next Superintendent of Orange County Public Schools.

Each forum will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Media Centers of the following schools:

March 28: Freedom High School

March 29: West Orange High School

March 30: Jones High School

March 31: Apopka High School

April 5: Lake Nona High School

For those unable to attend in person, the forums will be live-streamed here.
