Jefferson Parish extends schools superintendent’s contract
GRETNA, La. (AP) — Jefferson Parish has extended the contract for the superintendent of its public schools through 2022.
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports Cade Brumley has won a two-year contract extension. The School Board voted 8-1 Tuesday to keep Brumley through 2022 at the same salary: $269,000.
It was a strong vote of confidence in the new leader of Louisiana’s largest public school system. Brumley was hired in March under a contract that was to last through 2020. The extension was granted by a new board that took office in January and has high hopes that Brumley will improve the C-graded school system.
Already he has set up teacher and parent advisory councils, regularly visited schools, held regular coffee chats and community meetings and drafted a five-year strategic plan.
