Vermilion Parish School Superintendent Jerome Puyau has submitted his resume for the Lafayette Parish Superintendent position, the Abbeville Meridonal reports.

Puyau mailed his resume last week to the Lafayette School System, the newspaper reports.

It had to be postmarked by March 20. All applications will remain in a post office box until April 1. Then the Lafayette School Board will call a meeting to review them and move on to interviews.

We’ve made a public records request for the applications when they’re opened. Louisiana law states that one cannot make a private application to a public position.

“The decision to update my resume to include my time as the Superintendent of the Vermilion Parish School System was difficult,” Puyau told the Meridonal.  “However, I did not realize the most difficult decision was to actually submit the application. Vermilion is a great place to live, work and raise a family. My chances to actually become the Interim Superintendent is slim even though our district is one of the best districts in the state. Vermilion will continue to grow and prosper due to the people who make up each community of “Our Vermilion.”

Puyau sent out emails to Vermilion Parish principals letting them know he applied, the newspaper reports.
