Jon Prince to be St. Lucie County  school district’s next superintendent 

 

St. Lucie County, Fl (treasurecoast.com) – Jon Prince will be the school district’s next superintendent in St. Lucie County.

In a 4-1 vote Monday, the School Board selected Prince to succeed Wayne Gent, who announced his retirement less than three weeks ago. Jennifer Richardson cast the lone opposing vote.

The decision comes 11 days after the board already signaled it was prepared to promote Prince, the deputy superintendent since 2015, without considering any other candidates.

Prince, 52, is expected to start July 1, after Gent’s retirement is effective June 30 and a new contract is negotiated and approved.

Rather than hire a consultant  — like the district did for its past four superintendent searches in 1996, 2003, 2013 and 2015, when Gent was hired — the School Board immediately selected Prince after a community forum Monday.
