Leon School Board Delays Construction Workshop

May 7, 2014

A much-anticipated public meeting of the Leon County School Board has been postponed. 

Thursday’s meeting of the Leon County School Board was supposed to be an attempt to explain the district’s policies for awarding construction and maintenance contracts. The workshop comes in the wake of allegations by an anonymous group and current district administrator Rocky Hanna who allege many of the contracts were awarded based on political favors.

The Florida Department of Education and Florida Department of Law Enforcement declined to pursue the allegations.

No action was to be taken at the meeting but school officials planned to take public comment. The meeting has now been pushed back until Monday, May 19 at 6 p.m. at the Howell Building. The district rescheduled because school a relative of school board member Joy Bowen died.
