One day after Sarasota County Schools superintendent Todd Bowden wrote members of the board, asking them to delay a potential change his contract…the board unanimously accepted his request.

Bowden had asked for a delay on a motion filed by School Board member Caroline Zucker, which would have extended Bowden’s contract by two years to 2022 and eliminate a “terminate without cause” clause.
Bowden had called the measure a distraction leading into the new school year.
