Ascension Parish School Board starts search over for superintendent

ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - The search for a superintendent in Ascension Parish is starting again from the beginning.

The Ascension Parish School Board was set to pick finalists for superintendent of Ascension Public Schools Tuesday night. Instead, the board voted to start the search over and re-advertise for the position.

The board had interviewed four semi-finalists for superintendent last week via Skype.

"I would like to thank the Board for working together through this process and all the applicants for expressing interest in our school system. We will continue to move forward until we get the right person," said Ascension Parish School Board President Patricia Russo.

Russo told staff to move as fast as they could to place the ads and get through the search process once more.
