LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A new Lafayette Parish school superintendent could be selected by Dec. 7, if the school board follows a proposed timeline under consideration by the board's search committee.
The three-member committee - all members of the school board - met for the first time Tuesday to review how prior boards conducted superintendent searches and discussed the potential timeline.
The Advocate reports the full board voted in May to conduct the search itself rather than use a recruiting firm.
Recommendations are expected to come when the committee meets again Thursday.
The committee discussed a regional search and charged President Mark Allen Babineaux with gathering information and advertising rates for print and online publications.
Current Superintendent Burnell Lemoine will leave his job on Dec. 31.
