A Message from FADSS CEO

Thankful for the Dedication of Florida Superintendents

As we begin the second half of the 2023/2024 school year, I think it is paramount to continue to recognize and express sincere gratitude to Florida's 67 District School Superintendents who serve year-round, 24/7, as the education leader in their community. 

Not many people realize the tremendous scope and responsibility that comes with being a district school superintendent. In most districts, the school system is one of, if not the largest employer in a county. School districts are bound by the same challenges and constraints of any business, with the added responsibility of the education and general well-being of society’s most vulnerable population.     

Another thing that many people do not realize is that the job of a district school superintendent does not stop at the end of the school day – it is a 24/7, 365 day-a-year job. Whether it is attending school and district functions, participating in community events, dealing with lock-downs, or myriad of other events or situations;  the job does not end at 5:00 p.m. nor does Friday signal the end of the work week for a superintendent.  

As a former superintendent, I know firsthand the importance of continually engaging with your community. I also know it can be a lonely job. However, I think you would agree with me that the personal rewards of serving your community through educating students and employing teachers, staff, and administrators – far outweigh the long hours.  

Public schools are the cornerstone of every community, and district school superintendents play a critically role in ensuring the continued viability and success of the local school system, which has a direct, positive impact on the community at large.

I thank you for your continued service and dedication. 

Yours in Education,

Bill Montford
