Louisiana school superintendent announces plans to retire

February 13, 2019

OBERLIN, La. (AP) — A Louisiana school superintendent says he plans to retire this year after serving in the position for two decades.

The Lake Charles American Press reports that Allen Parish School Superintendent Michael Doucet announced his plans to retire in June following a brief executive session with school board members Monday.

Doucet said his contract ends June 30 and that he figured it was just time. Doucet was named to the position in April 1999 after a former superintendent’s contract was not renewed by the board.

The board will now begin advertising for a new superintendent before reviewing resumes and certifications and interviewing applicants. A new superintendent could be appointed by April and would spend the next two months training for the position under Doucet.
