PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — At Wednesday’s workshop, the Pinellas County School Board will select semi-finalists for the superintendent position.

There are 19 people who applied to the job.

Also at the workshop, board members will identify questions for semi-finalists, discuss the process for selecting finalists, and review the contract negation process for the next superintendent.

Here are some qualities leaders will be looking for when selecting semi-finalists:

  • At least a master’s degree
  • 10 years of education leadership experience
  • Five years in an executive leadership role
  • Experience in a larger school district

Once the board has narrowed down the finalists, here’s what will happen next:

  • Each candidate will have an interview with all board members as well as one-on-one interviews with the board
  • School and community tours for each finalist
  • Community meet and greets will most likely be in the evening of May 11

The board is looking to select a new superintendent on May 17, that person will replace the current superintendent, Michael Grego who is retiring in July
