An effort to fire Robert Runcie faces an uphill climb.
Broward District School Board member Lori Alhadeff has asked the board to vote at its next meeting on Tuesday to fire the superintendent. Alhadeff lost a daughter in last year's school shooting, and she and other parents have called for Runcie to step down, which he has refused to do.
The Broward District School Board will vote next week on terminating Superintendent Runcie's contract, but only two of the nine members have publicly supported such a move.
Five members have publicly supported Runcie, including Donna Korn, while two others have yet to publicly take a position. Korn says she believes Runcie is up to the challenges the district faces.
