My name is Dr. Brandon Johnson and I am the Executive Director overseeing Elementary Schools here in Sarasota County. Together, working hand in hand with each of our schools and side by side with an incredibly talented Curriculum Department, we look to provide our students, staff, and families with the most memorable experience possible.

Our goal is to serve, support and exceed your expectations. As an Elementary Department, we proudly support all of our K-5 public schools through partnerships with our families and community to ensure that each of our students possesses the strongest foundation upon which to build their future success.

Sarasota County has a rich tradition of excellence and a stellar reputation based on student achievement, staff professionalism, and parent satisfaction. At the Elementary level, our schools have become models for student learning, and our staff continues to carefully connect the “Essential Pieces” to enhance teaching and learning through the implementation of research-based instructional best practices.

As the Executive Director of Elementary Schools, I strongly encourage every family to become involved & engaged in a meaningful way in their child’s educational experience. As a Community of Caring, the values of Trust, Respect, Responsibility, Caring & Family are collectively embraced by all, thus allowing our schools to serve as shining examples of how true teamwork and partnership between the home and school translate into success for every child!

The school district welcomes you and your children to the Sarasota County Schools family, and we wish the youngest of our students the most successful journey possible!
