BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The only finalist in the search for a new School Board Superintendent went through an interview process with the East Baton Rouge Parish Public School Board and the public Thursday.
Warren Drake, who was picked out of 10 candidates March 18, has worked as an educator in several schools in the parish. He had a copy of what he would do his first hundred days for each school board member. They vote on April 2nd about whether to offer him the position or not.
"You'll have a chance to take a look at this. Many, many people have asked to see this hundred-day plan, but I have not shown it to anyone until I showed it to the board," said Drake.
Drake led the Zachary School System as its superintendent into the No. 1 rank among schools statewide.
If he is selected, Drake will replace outgoing superintendent Dr. Bernard Taylor, whose contract runs through June. They expect to approve him, but if they reject him, this whole process starts over again.
