Superintendent Cooper Receives ‘Unsuccessful’ Evaluation Score From School Board
Lafayette Superintendent Pat Cooper received an 'unsuccessful' rating following his recent evaluation conducted by members of the school board. Cooper received a score of 3.54 out of 8, with 8 being the highest.
The 'negative' score could potentially allow the board to move forward with the termination process, however Board President Hunter Beasley says that's not likely to happen at this time.
