BOCA RATON, FL ( — Embattled Palm Beach County School Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy will undergo his annual performance review during the school board meeting set for October 21st. It is unclear if the school board is prepared to take action on Fennoy’s contract following missteps, miscommunications and what many teachers call “lies” about his administration’s handling of COVID-19.

Fennoy prepared a flashy PDF touting his achievements. You can read the PDF below. But there’s no mention of the school district’s need to request an extension for starting “in-person education” due to Fennoy’s poor planning, the constant miscommunication to teachers who were told they could teach from home — only to have that offer rescinded, and the association of Palm Beach County administrators (principals) which spoke out against Fennoy’s performance.

Fennoy, questioned about his poor performance and planning earlier this school year, told the board that it was excusable as “this is new to all of us.”

Dr. Fennoy also came under fire for a rambling, angry and somewhat incoherent video message in which he essentially told teachers, concerned about their own health and welfare, to just do their jobs. You can watch that video here.

Read the PDF below. Dr. Fennoy’s contract is also published, below.
