This week, Dr. José L. Dotres began his new leadership role as superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools – the nation’s No. 4 largest school district.
Replacing Alberto Carvalho, who left to become superintendent of Los Angeles Public Schools, Dotres draws from experience working in both Broward and Collier county school districts. Most recently, he was Miami-Dade schools’ chief human capital officer, where he oversaw teacher and leader development, recruitment and labor relations.
Dotres was picked among a pool of 16 applicants, from which three finalists were chosen. He will be making a $370,000-a-year salary, according to the Miami Herald.
