LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A three-member committee formed to lay the groundwork for a search for Lafayette Parish's new school superintendent may start its work this week.
School Board President Mark Allen Babineaux tells The Advocate he and board members Hunter Beasley and Tommy Angelle will jump-start the search process, but as of Tuesday, no date for a possible meeting had been set.
It's the first search for a superintendent in 11 years, when the board hired James Easton - later ousted in 2007.
Since then, the district has been led by Burnell Lemoine, who was promoted to superintendent.
Lemoine recently announced he plans to retire rather than consider another contract extension through May 2012.
