What a difference a week makes….. Last Saturday, REDBROWARD exposed the dangerous process used by the Broward School Board to distribute laptop computers to parents and students. Long lines of parents and kids huddled together at Plantation High School and South Plantation High School violated President Donald Trump and CDC protocols for social distancing.
Today, parents at both Plantation high schools were kept in car lines instead of the lines on the sidewalks and parking lots. While the lines were a bit long, safety of staff and parents appeared to be the top priority.
Joel Herbst, South Area Superintendent for the Broward County school district, has resigned. This comes as no surprise as Herbst was passed over in last year’s superintendent search. Not to worry, sources tell RED BROWARD Herbst will stay in the educational field. Herbst also sells a vitamin supplement in his spare time.
One question remains, did Herbst ever talk about the secret money fund at South Plantation. Reports claim the fund existed during Herbst’s tenure as South Plantation High School principal.
“Basile, who has been at the school about four years, told district officials he didn’t realize the account was in violation of district and state policies. Herbst said it was used for ‘the welfare of the school’ and in keeping with the philanthropic mission of the PTO.” read more at the Sun-Sentinel
His information would be helpful to investigators trying to determine what the heck was going on over there. Godspeed Joel!
