Superintendent Search

  • The School Board of Manatee County has begun a search for a new Superintendent of Schools. The Florida School Boards Association has been retained to assist in conducting this comprehensive and inclusive search to find the best candidate to lead our schools.

    To ensure transparency and accessibility, information and updates related to the Superintendent Search will be posted in this section including the timeline, applicant information, and community input opportunities.

    The website will be updated as new information becomes available.

Community Input

  • The School Board is seeking community-wide input concerning the leadership qualities desired in the next Superintendent, the chief leader for the School District of Manatee County.

    Your assistance is greatly appreciated. All information will be reported to the School Board to be used to build the application, for application screening, designing questions for applicants, and for interviews.
