Sarasota school board starts process of finding new superintendent
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The Sarasota County School Board is looking within the district for an interim superintendent as it prepares for a nationwide search for a permanent replacement.
In its first meeting of 2023, board members discussed two people to fill the job temporarily; Dr. Allison Foster, Executive Director of Human Resources for Sarasota County Schools, and Dr. Ron DiPillo, executive director of Suncoast Technical College.
The administrator in the job now, acting Superintendent Chris Renouf, says he does not want the interim position because of personal reasons.
This discussion comes after the polarizing vote last month to oust now former Superintendent Dr. Brennan Asplen. Many people say it was politically motivated.
Renouf will remain acting superintendent until the Sarasota County School Board reconvenes Feb. 7. A nationwide search for a permanent superintendent will take place in the coming months.
