The Duval County Florida school board has picked someone other than Memphis City Schools superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash to lead the Jacksonville-based school system.

The seven board members, meeting Tuesday, Sept. 25, picked Nikolai Vitti, the chief academic officer of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Florida to be the new leader of the school system of 125,000 students.

Cash was the only one of the three finalists who has been a superintendent.

The afternoon vote followed a long day in Jacksonville that began with a last set of public interviews of the three finalists by the school board starting with Cash.

Cash had also applied earlier this year to be superintendent of Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina. And he was a finalist for the job there as well. He withdrew from the search shortly before the board there picked another candidate.
