Down in Florida, the Duval County School Board has narrowed its pool of superintendent candidates down to three finalists.
And James Williams is not among them.
Buffalo's former superintendent had been one of 30 applicants for the job in Jacksonville, as you might recall.
After an all-day interview with the board, the three emerged as finalists. Each candidate has his flaws, board members said, but these men have the best potential for becoming the transformational leader Jacksonville needs.
Cash is the outgoing superintendent for Memphis City Schools. Vitti is the chief academic officer for Miami-Dade Public Schools. And Robbins is a retired education administrator, most recently as one of the associate superintendents at Gwinnett County Public Schools.
The other semifinalists were William Miller, executive director of the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators, and Kathryn LeRoy, Duval County’s chief academic officer.
