EBRSB set to decide on superintendent's future

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board plans to look at the future of Superintendent Dr. Bernard Taylor during a meeting Thursday.

Taylor is the man who pretty much controls what happens at EBR public schools, including where children go to get their education, so the decision that will be reached is an important one. The school board has a few options to consider.

Taylor started in June 2012 with a three-year contract, meaning that contract is set to expire in June 2015. However, there's a provision in his contract that states the board has to let him know what it wants when his contract ends.

Board members can offer a new contract of one, two or three years. They can also buy him out now, not have him serve out his last year and basically appoint an interim superintendent. Or, they let him serve out the next year and begin the search soon for a new superintendent.

According to sources, Taylor has indicated he wants to stay through the end of his contract so stay.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m., so look for the outcome later in the day.
