Baton Rouge School Board Approves Two Hires
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board has unanimously approved initial reorganization plans of its incoming superintendent, including the hiring of two new top administrators.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/K4C8AX ) Bernard Taylor, who was selected in March and whose first official day isn't until Monday, persuaded the board on June 7 to adopt a new organizational chart that includes at least five new job positions.
Four days later, the school board filled two of the new jobs — deputy superintendent for innovation and reform executive assistant to the superintendent for parent and community engagement. They are expected to start working July 1.
