CHARLOTTE COUNTY,FL-It may only be the middle of July, but two of Charlotte County’s elementary schools are back in session as of today. And it is only a few weeks until the rest of the schools start back. So everyone needs to use caution when driving, particularly around the school zones and school buses.
BRADENTON, Fla The Manatee County School Board voted unanimously to give former Assistant Superintendent Robert Gagnon $116,000 in back pay. This comes weeks after Gagnon was cleared in a criminal court of not doing enough to report suspected child abuse in the schools. Former football coach Rod Frazier ultimately pleaded no contest in order to avoid trial and is serving house arrest.
