The Duval County School Board reopened its search for a new school superintendent on March 15 and will accept applications through April 15. 

Here Dr. Shannon Varga, JPEF Director of Research and Data, and Leofric Thomas, Jr., Manager of Research and Policy, discuss the superintendent search.

In October 2023, the board suspended the search it had begun following the retirement of Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene in July. Board members cited a lack of qualified applicants as the reason to postpone the search.

During the search last year, Duval County Public Schools conducted a series of community events and a public survey to get input from the community.
