Florida Superintendents and School Board Members Election Results 2012
Interesting data sent yesterday to board members from the FSBA. Looks as though roughly 50% of Sitting Elected Superintendents in contested races won, the other half were defeated. Not very good re-election odds...
District School Board members fared much better-- with 119 total members seeking another term and only 16 incumbents being ousted from their seats. Breakdown from the FSBA email below:
The FSBA staff has tried to supply as much information as possible, using data gathered from local school board offices and from the Supervisor of Elections in each county. Please note that these results are UNOFFICIAL and some results may change due to potential recounts.
