Three parish schools to see new leaders
Superintendent of Schools Danny Bell said principals are typically hired on two-year contracts and are rehired based on their work performances. He believes strong leadership skills and academic records are mandatory assets for principal candidates.
“You must be able to communicate and work with others and lead the school forward with the issue of accountability standards,” Bell said.
“With accountability, we must always have the philosophy of ‘What more can we offer these students so they can do better?’ You have to have a mindset of enthusiasm.”
