The Community Foundation of Broward on Oct. 5 hosted new Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Peter B. Licata for an insightful conversation about the future of local education.
The Community Foundation’s leadership team was joined by local civic leaders, Community Foundation Fundholders, nonprofit partners and others for a "Meet the Superintendent" breakfast with the new leader of the nation’s sixth largest school district.
The superintendent discussed improving student performance, mental health needs, creating career pathways, LGBTQ support, overcoming the COVID slide and other important topics.
Dr. Licata is the former South Region Superintendent for the School District of Palm Beach County, who began his career in education nearly 30 years ago as a teacher and basketball coach.
Once a first-grader at McNab Elementary School in Pompano Beach, Dr. Licata has returned to Broward to lead a school district with more than 254,000 students, 327 schools and 31,000 employees.
