Caddo Parish School Board: Delay Superintendent Selection

    1. Caddo District Parent Teacher Association
    2. Petition by

      Caddo District Parent Teacher Association

      Shreveport, United States

Our children and their instructors deserve academic continuity for the 2013-2014.  The selection and hiring of a new Superintendent in the middle of the school year would be a disruption to students and schools of Caddo Parish Public Schools. 

The Caddo District PTA Board of Directors has started this petition in order to delay the upcoming Superintendent selection at the end of October.  We believe that the entire Superintendent Search process should be delayed at least until the spring of 2014.  This would give the Caddo Parish School Board time to conduct a more thorough search for viable Superintendent candidates.

Delaying the Superintendent Search will also allow the Caddo Parish School Board and the interim Superintendent focus on other current academic issues and challenges: 

  • 1) Completing the transition to Common Core and
  • 2) Developing a plan for Academically Unacceptable Schools (AUS) to submit to the Recovery School District (RSD).


By signing this petition, you will help the Caddo District PTA advocate for the students of Caddo Parish Public Schools and their best interests by delaying the Superintendent Search.

    1. Show your Support

      Please keep showing your support. The School Board may be continuing with the Superintendent Search, but they don't have to select a candidate. This is still a self-imposed deadline with three candidates that are even less qualified than those from the previous round. Let's have our voices be heard!

    2. Reached 250 signatures
    3. We can do this!

      Thanks for your support! We'll be presenting the current results of the Petition at the School Board's Special Session tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 p.m. The more signatures, the more of an impact we will have.

      My child is a Caddo Parish student and I believe that we need no disruptions to the children in these schools.

      This important to me because I am tied of you'll messing over tax payer's money and going out of state looking for other candidates.

      My grandson attends a Caddo public school as well as some other relatives. I believe that we need to have more consistency and continuity in our school system. I agree that they need as little disruption as possible as do the teachers. To change the horse in the middle of the stream could be more detrimental than helpful. Please let the interim Superintendent finish this school year.
