Concerns over the Monroe superintendent search committee

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Concerns are brought to the surface over the Monroe Superintendent Search Committee. Some school board members are wondering if the search group is making any progress.

"Please search committee, let's get this thing going," School Board Member Glynn Ludley said.

The search committee remains alive. Board President Verbon Muhammad believes there's no need to worry.

"We didn't have a meeting the last time, but we're looking forward to getting with Bishop McFarland and we'll have a date set for the next committee meeting," Muhammad said.

Board members Rodney McFarland and Glynn Ludley are upset at the most recent search committee meeting. Muhammad and Board Vice President Mickey Traweek are serving on the committee.

Monday, McFarland, who also serves as the chair was the only person present.

"If you feel this committee is no longer needed, you have the executive power to disband it," McFarland said to the board president during the meeting.

Muhammad is optimistic over the search process. Even though, the application period is ending in about a month and the applicant pile remains empty.

"I think the applicants will come," the board president said. "We still have a month to go. There will be a flood of applicants."

Tuesday, board members say the next superintendent will be making no more than $150,000 a year. School leaders are not going over items like rules and responsibilities and a rubric to evaluate the applicants until the committee discusses them first.
