The Sarasota County School Board Offers Superintendent Todd Bowden Mutual Separation Agreement – November 11, 2019

A mutual separation agreement from the Sarasota County School Board has been presented and accepted by Superintendent Todd Bowden. If the Board approves the agreement during the November 19 school board meeting, the superintendent’s tenure with Sarasota County Schools will end on December 31, 2019. Dr. Bowden was hired with the school district in August of 2007 as the Director of the Suncoast Technical College. He was officially appointed the position of superintendent in March of 2017. The Superintendent’s current contract runs from February 20, 2019 through June 30, 2023.

After accepting the terms of the agreement, Dr. Bowden offers the following statement:

“For three years I have had the privilege of serving Sarasota County schools as superintendent. I have witnessed excellence among our teachers, dedication between our principals, care from our staff and innovative approaches to learning by our administrators. Because of their efforts, our students have excelled academically and are well-positioned to become caring and informed citizens of the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve so many, and I hope the next superintendent will further propel this outstanding school district to excel even more. Personally, my wife and I plan to remain in the area where our two children will continue their education in Sarasota County schools.”
