EBRSS names 3 superintendent finalists

 


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Welcome to Friday people. The conversations continue to swirl around education here in the state. This, after a pair of education reform bills moved their way through a Senate committee Thursday. Of course, it was Wednesday that the bills passed through a House committee. Where do you see this going? As that was going on, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System was trying again to find a superintendent. The board has already whittled down the list to the final three candidates. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before heading out today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route.
