Dr. Frank Petruzielo began his career 47 years ago in the nation’s fourth largest school district as a high school English teacher in Dade County, Miami, Fl. (source: his own resume on the Cherokee County Board of Education website.)
Since the School Board extended Dr. P’s contract another two years, last year, and he was to be only a five-year solution after Corky Jones’ departure when he arrived, has the board initiated any effort to address Dr. P’s departure when the current contract is up?
If he went to college immediately after high school, we can assume that he started teaching no earlier than age 22, probably 23 or 24. Taking 22 plus 47 would put his age at 69.
Specifically, in any “good” business environment, succession is more than important, it is mandatory for the health of the organization.
At what point does “term limit” not apply to the superintendent’s position?
