Several school boards will be selecting key personnel members over the next two days.
The Iberia Parish School Board will select an interim board member to represent District 4 at its meeting tomorrow night. The seat was vacated when Raymond "Shoe Do" Lewis was a seat on the New Iberia City Council.
The St. Martin Parish School Board will select the district's next superintendent at its meeting tomorrow night. The board will choose one of three candidates: Lottie Beebe, St. Martin Schools Director of Human Resources; Dr. Daniel Rawls, former Pointe Coupee Parish Schools Superintendent and current principal at Stephensville Elementary; or Charles Michel, Lafourche Parish Schools Supervisor of Special Education. The new superintendent will replace Richard Lavergne, who is retiring on July 1.
Also on Wednesday, the Lafayette Parish School Board will elect its president and vice president for the upcoming year. The board will also vote on whether to approve a contract with AMIkids to provide alternative education at N. P. Moss Prep.
On Thursday, the St. Landry Parish School Board will set a date to hold its superintendent selection. The process has been held up since September after allegations of two board members trying bribing one of the candidates, Interim Superintendent Joseph Cassimere, surfaced. The board will also choose its president and vice president for 2013. Rawls and Michel have also thrown their name into the hat for the St. Landry Schools Superintendent's position. Port Barre High Principal William Duplechain and Supervisor of Child Welfare Edward Brown are also candidates for the job.
