Miami-Dade’s Carvalho is Florida’s Superintendent of the Year


Alberto Carvalho, the chief of Miami-Dade’s massive public school system, was named the state’s top superintendent Wednesday by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents.

Carvalho, who has run the district since the fall of 2008, has overseen a spike in graduation rates and a steady, overall uptick in scores on state assessments. Last year, the district won the Broad Prize, considered the nation’s top prize for large urban school districts.

With the honor, Miami-Dade has swept the state’s top honors for teacher, assistant principal and principal since the beginning of 2013.
