Antonio Burgess

Broward County School Board, District 5, FL

Antonio's commitment to District 5 started when he was just a school-aged child attending North Fork Elementary School, Parkway Middle School, and Dillard High School.

After graduating high school, he attended Florida A&M University and received a bachelor’s degree in education. Antonio is committed to enriching the lives of young people, and he returned to the very school district that raised him to teach, lead, and give students the same opportunities and quality education that was given to him.

Currently, he leads district-wide mentoring initiatives, where he has gained a better insight and perspective into the internal workings of the school district. His top priorities as a school board member include: expanding support services, improving safety and security, and increasing student achievement, equity, and access.

Antonio has also served his community through various community organizations for 10+ years.
