A state agency has ruled that School District administrator Ken Gentile did not act inappropriately when he listed "Florida CPA" on his resume when applying for work. Gentile, director of Finance and Performance, was certified as a CPA with New York state, but let his license lapse. He was suspended without pay for five days last year.
Monroe County School District attorneys now will decide how to respond to the ruling.
Though the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation has ruled, the case is not yet closed. A video hearing between the Marathon Government Center and Tallahassee is set for 9 a.m. March 20.
