OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - After extensive discussion, the St. Landry Parish School Board delayed until next month voting on a new superintendent.
Board member Huey Wyble provided no explanation before proposing a motion Thursday to postpone until March the selection of a superintendent.
The board approved Wyble's motion 8 to 3, with board member Raymond Cassimere abstaining.
Cassimere is the brother of Joseph Cassimere, who has served as St. Landry's interim superintendent for the past 11 months.
St. Landry has been without a superintendent since October 2011, when Michael Nassif resigned from the position. Joseph Cassimere followed Donnie Perron, who was named interim superintendent several days after the board learned of Nassif's resignation.
