SARASOTA, Fla. -- Sarasota County schools has hired a new interim superintendent, and is now looking to move forward with a fresh start by putting some recent turmoil behind them.

The job went to Mitsi Corcoran, who had been filling the role of superintendent since last month, when the school board let go of superintendent Todd Bowden.

Bowden was criticized for his lack of action taken in a sexual harassment issue.

Now Corcoran and the school board want to hire an agency to train staff and students to make sure everyone knows what sexual harassment is.
