It looks as if the job of interim Superintendent of Lafayette Parish Schools will go to someone who is already on the inside. Lafayette Parish School Board officials are expected to meet with the two remaining candidates for the interim post in a special meeting later today.

Those two finalists should be fairly familiar to school board members since both candidates are currently employed by Lafayette schools. The candidates who will meet with school board members today are Irma Trosclair and Bart Thibodeaux.

Trosclair currently serves as assistant superintendent for the district. While Thibodeaux is employed as the board’s director of special education. Both bring extensive experience and credentials to the table for the board to consider.

The person chosen by the board following tonight's special meetings will serve in the position of Superintendent from May of this year until June of next year. They will succeed the retiring Dr. Donald Aguillard. This one-year interim position will allow a newly elected board to secure the services of a permanent superintendent following the October elections.

The special meeting of the Lafayette Parish School Board is scheduled to begin tonight at 5:30.
