Broward County, Florida – The Broward County School Board is set to make a decisive vote this Thursday regarding the approval of a contract agreement with the prospective Superintendent, Peter Licata.
Earlier in the month, Licata, a Boynton Beach resident and currently serving as a regional superintendent for the Palm Beach County school district, was chosen for the position by the majority of the board.
However, board members Torey Alston and Brenda Fam abstained from this vote, casting their preference instead for Sito Narcisse, the incumbent superintendent for the East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana school district.
Licata boasts a rich educational and professional background in the Palm Beach schools, having dedicated his services since September 1994. Throughout his tenure, he has filled numerous roles, including teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal, and curriculum director, thereby amassing a comprehensive understanding of the educational system.
In terms of academic qualifications, Licata holds a doctorate degree in global leadership from Lynn University. He also possesses a bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami and a master’s degree from Barry University, underlining his robust academic foundation.
The selection of Licata was made from a pool of three finalists, marking him as a top contender for the position. Following the impending vote, the board’s approval or disapproval of the contract agreement with Licata will officially set the course for the district’s leadership.
