St. Johns County School District (SJCSD) is the public school district for St. Johns County, Florida. St. Johns County is home to three of the nation's best high schools (Nease 91st, Bartram 327th and St. Augustine 421st) according to Newsweek Magazine in 2008.[1]

History[edit]

School board[edit]

The county administrative offices are located at 40 Orange Street in St. Augustine, Florida. The superintendent of SJCSD is Dr. Joseph Joyner, who administrates the daily operation of public schools in the county. The position of superintendent is appointed by the St. Johns County School Board, a body of five elected officers, each board member representing a specific geographic area. The current School Board members, in order of district number, are Beverly Slough, Tommy Allen, Bill Mignon, Bill Fehling and Carla Wright. Board members are elected in staggered four years terms with 2-term limits; districts 1, 3 & 5 elected during midterm election cycles (next in 2010) and districts 2 & 4 elected during presidential cycles (next in 2008).

Growth[edit]

With the tremendous population growth, the number of St. Johns County academic high schools tripled between 2000 and 2008. For the 2007-2008 school year, the district had an enrollment of 27,514 students, which according to the St. Augustine Record continued its ranking as "one of the fastest-growing school districts in the state" of Florida.[2] That figure reflected a four percent increase (1,040 students) from the previous year.[2]
