Manatee County superintendent announces retirement

Cynthia Saunders, who has served as Manatee County School’s superintendent since June 2018, announced her plans to retire at the end of the 2022-23 school year, according to a press release sent Friday.

Her retirement comes as her contract expires in June. Her last day will be June 30. She previously served as executive director of secondary schools and deputy superintendent of instructional services before becoming superintendent of Manatee County Schools.

“It has been the pinnacle of my career to serve as the superintendent in Manatee County,” Saunders said in a press release. “Our academic ranking among the state’s 67 school districts is at its highest level ever, and so is our school district’s fund balance.”
