Hillsborough school administrators being asked to reapply for jobs
More than a dozen Hillsborough County Schools administrators will have to reapply for their jobs.
Superintendent Jeff Eakins told 13 high-ranking administrators on Monday that they will have to reapply, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Eight of the administrators are area superintendents.
Most of the workers have spent decades working in education but some are not specialists in what they oversee. Eakins said he expressed his confidence to each of the administrators.
Eakins said he is making the move to ensure administrators are qualified to manage the more than 200 schools and 27,000 employees that the district oversees.
Eakins said he will introduce his reorganization plan, which the reapplications are a part of, at the April 12 school board meeting.
