Plans are still on track for Palm Beach County schools to welcome a new corruption watchdog. Or are they?
Pressed for time Wednesday, the School Board called for a one-week postponement of its planned selection of finalists for the new position of inspector general.
The board agenda was already packed with a two-hour workshop about juvenile justice programs and the controversial consideration of a recommendation to fire Suncoast High band director Ernest Brown. Read my story in today’s editions.
Board member Marcia Andrews said she had some concerns about the inspector general search process and wanted more time to review it.
District administrators said a one-week delay would not negatively impact an established timeline to fill the job. There are eight qualified candidates, including school district Auditor Lung Chiu.
The board has set a June 6 vote to appoint the new inspector general to a four-year term.
