Dade County Schools chief Tobin retiring by May 1

Dade County Schools will have to find a new superintendent by May 1, because current Superintendent Shawn Tobin has announced he will retire by then.

Tobin, who has worked three years with the district, wrote a letter to school employees announcing his retirement. He cited the creation of a mentorship program and an emotional behavioral program as some of the district's accomplishments during his tenure.

"Dade County is the most spiritual, patriotic and empathetic environment in which I have lived," Tobin wrote to school employees — or, as he called them "Dear Dade Family."
