Dr. Bowden Reads to Students

Superintendent Todd Bowden looks forward to continuing the excellent work of the Sarasota County School District and inspiring students to succeed

April 9, 2018

For the last year, I’ve had the privilege of serving as superintendent of Sarasota County Schools, a school district I’m incredibly proud of and care deeply for. Recently, there has been a lot of negativity in the news regarding issues between me, school board members and other government entities in our community. It is time to remind ourselves of our goal, which is to keep our students safe while at school, and provide the best learning experiences possible for success both academically and personally. 

So much good has happened during my tenure – we continue to maintain an “A” grade and are one of only two school districts to continuously do so since grading began in 2004. In addition, our student athletes continue to stand out both on the field and in the classroom. Likewise, our performing arts programs remain unparalleled, and our science and technology-based activities continue to excel – not just here in Sarasota County, but throughout the world. Furthermore, Sarasota County Schools boasts the best staff, teachers and administrators in the state, and I am proud to work alongside such dedicated professionals who care so much for the well-being our students.

I have a personal passion for this community and hope to serve as its superintendent for many years to come. I look forward to starting the week with a renewed sense of commitment and dedication towards our students and staff, and building a better community together.
