Marianne Arbulu is Jefferson County’s new Superintendent of Schools. The Republican school board member beat Democrat Kelvin Norton with 45 percent of the vote.

The Florida Board of Education is growing frustrated with the failures of the Jefferson County School District, and it’s looking for solutions, including a merger. But it’s running into legal roadblocks, and Wednesday’s meeting didn’t provide any resolution. Meanwhile,  the district’s superintendent has lost his reelection bid.
