SARASOTA COUNTY, June 18, 2020 – Jane Goodwin, the most recent past Chair of the Sarasota County School Board, has been named the President of the Florida School Boards Association (FSBA) for the 2020-2021 operational year. Goodwin served as FSBA’s President-Elect for the 2019-2020 operational year, and has previously served the organization as Chair of their Legislative Committee.
“I am honored to serve as President of the Florida School Boards Association,” said Goodwin. “This organization represents the collective voice of all elected school boards, and by extension, the millions of families within 67 unique counties that comprise the state of Florida. It’s FSBA’s steadfast mission to continually improve the quality of public education for all students. Now more than ever, we need to band together and chart a solid course forward for our students and teachers that promotes diversity & inclusion, reduces the achievement gap, fosters high-quality academic standards, and promotes emotional & civic growth. I look forward to working with my fellow county school board members across the state as we move towards fulfilling these objectives together.”
