Dear Chairman Barbieri and School Board members:
Please accept this letter as my official resignation from the position of Superintendent of the Palm Beach County School District. I am exercising the clause in my contract that requires 90-day notice. My final day serving as superintendent will be Monday, Oct. 11, 2021.
The decision to resign my position was made after careful thought, discussion with my family, and self-reflection.
I am incredibly proud of the work that we have accomplished as a team over the lat five years in our mutual and ongoing commitment to ensuring academic excellence for our students. The past 15-months, in particular, have presented challenges, but because of our resilient and dedicated staff, we have turned challenges into opportunities for growth.
I am grateful to the entire school board for providing me the opportunity to serve as superintendent in Palm Beach County.
The passion remains with me. I look forward to continuing to serve our amazing community in other ways while also spending more quality time with my family.
Donald E. Fennoy II, Ed.D.
Superintendent, School District of Palm Beach County
