UPDATE: After sifting through the applications on Monday, Broward School Board members decided not to invite Johnson, the former Palm Beach superintendent, back for an interview. The board assigned points to each of the semi-finalists based on their applications: Runcie (45), Bowles (29), Browder (28), Brathwaite (27), Taylor (26) and Seigel (23).
Johnson received 11.
