Palm Beach County School District Teachers Outraged By Video Message Sent Tonight

Donald Fennoy staff message
Dr. Donald Fennoy, Superintendent of Palm Beach County Schools, in staff message some are calling “incoherent and combative.”

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Palm Beach County School District Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy, at times slurring his words, blasted Palm Beach County Teachers in a Tuesday night message transmitted via YouTube. The message, sent to us by several teachers in the School District, appears to be condescending with one consistent theme: “teachers, do what you’re told.”

MAJOR UPDATE: CTA To Call For Fennoy’s Termination During Wednesday School Board Meeting.

While Fennoy acknowledged the massive problems that still exist, the fact that teachers with legitimate health concerns still have no idea what they’re doing or allowed to do, and that principals have been given mixed messages about who is calling the shots at the school level, Fennoy appears strained, stressed and inconsistent.

Fennoy actually said “it gets noisy before it gets calm.” Fennoy added that he expects classroom attendance to grow over the next several weeks, even though the Palm Beach County School District expects just half of the student population — at most — to return for in-person education on September 21st. Principals and teachers are privately encouraging parents to keep their kids home due to the continued lack of plans, personal protective equipment, air quality issues, sanitization problems and social distancing impossibilities.

Wrote one teacher to sending us this video:

“Epic Fail!”

We encourage you to watch the entire three minute presentation.
