Retired Pinellas superintendent takes new job with Georgia schools

Former Pinellas school superintendent Howard Hinesley has landed a job with a small school district in north Georgia.

The Cartersville Board of Education named Hinesley superintendent last week, approving a three-year contract to take effect July 1. His salary will be $118,874. In Pinellas, Hinesly, 57, earned more than $170,000 plus benefits that brought his total compensation to nearly $300,000.

He retired last Nov. 1 after 26 years with Pinellas schools, 14 of them as superintendent. He was thought to be the longest serving superintendent in the nation. At the time, Hinesley said he planned to move closer to his parents in north Georgia and perhaps re-enter education.

Cartersville is about 45 miles north of Atlanta.

In his new role, Hinesley will oversee a much smaller operation serving 3,882 students with a budget of $27-million and a staff of 548. Pinellas has 113,000 students, a $1.2-billion budget and about 15,000 employees.
