FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Broward County School Board has rescinded the firing of their superintendent.

On Tuesday, the board voted 5-3 to revoke Superintendent Dr. Vickie Cartwright termination.

Originally, Cartwright had been fired back in November after being given a 90-day notice.

This all began in October when a group of appointed school members began the process of firing Cartwright.

At the time, she had only been superintendent for nine months.

Cartwright was given 90 days to create a plan on what she would be doing moving forward, but two weeks later, the board voted to terminate her from the position.

Newly-elected school board members replaced the majority of the board’s previous members, who were selected to Governor Ron DeSantis. They then began the process to revoke Cartwright’s termination.

In the meantime, staff will still continue with a nationwide search for a replacement.

For the time being, Cartwright remains as superintendent.

She spoke to the press shortly after the decision was made.

“I would just like to say that I am very grateful for the board for the decision in which they made today,” said Cartwright. “I continue to look forward to work alongside every board member as we go forward. During this entire time, my attention has been on the daily operations of our school district, ensuring we’re making our students first as our guiding principle, making those decisions through that lens.”

The board will meet once again, on Jan. 24, to decide her future with the board.

“Since February, I have been able to fill my cabinet with individuals who are making a difference in the lives for our children, our staff and our community,” said Cartwright.
