WEST PALM BEACH – The reorganization of the School District of Palm Beach County’s Regional offices took effect July 1, a move that provides more direct support and resources to each of the District’s schools staff and students.

With this reorganization, the District has moved from five Area offices with one Area Superintendent assigned to all of the schools in that area to four Regional offices – South, North, Central and Glades – with a Regional Superintendent and Instructional Superintendents in each region dedicated to a smaller concentration of schools.

“This is an exciting new beginning for our schools, students and staff,” said David Christensen, Deputy Superintendent and Chief of Schools. “Each of the members of this team bring vast experience, a clear understanding of the goals we have set, and the plan we have implemented to meet those goals.”

These four Regional offices and their leadership teams will deliver specialized support to schools and principals to meet the goals of the District’s Strategic Plan, with a focus on improving outcomes for students by increasing reading on grade level by third grade, ensuring high school readiness, increasing the graduation rate and fostering post-graduate success. This reorganization also moves $5.5 million from District administrative offices back into schools.

Teachers, principals, school staff and administrators will continue work directly with students and families to provide a safe and effective learning environment, and this reorganization will help them to better focus on the services and resources that they provide.
