Last week, Lafayette Parish School Superintendent Donald Aguillard outlined his reorganization plan that he believes will streamline operations of the school system's office.

This week, Aguillard has named a Chief Academic Officer. Annette Samec has been appointed to the position.

Samec has 14 years of experience teaching math and physical education within the system, and has 33 years of experience overall in education. Eight of those years were spent as Carecro High School's Assistant Principal and nine years as Principal.

Samec serves right now as the Principal at Alice Boucher Elementary.  She has held that post for the last two years.

Superintendent Aguillard has appointed Joe Craig as the Chief Administrative Officer of the Lafayette school district.

Craig also has years of experience serving Lafayette Parish Schools.

He has held the following positions:

  • Science Teacher at Paul Breaux Middle School
  • Assistant Principal at Carencro Middle School
  • Assistant Principal at Acadia
