Two Principals Named

Two Lincoln Parish School Principals were named and introduced at last night’s meeting of the Lincoln Parish School Board.

Jennifer Martin will assume leadership at Choudrant Elementary July 1, following the retirement of Charles Hogan. An eighteen year Lincoln Schools veteran, she had taught at Choudrant and Glenview.

Named Principal at Ruston Junior High was Keisha Douglas. Like Martin she too is a Lincoln veteran, most recently as I. A. Lewis Principal. She had also been an Assistant Principal at Ruston Junior High.

District Superintendent Ricky Durrett was asked about the upcoming summer school session and how long it would be.

“There’s two weeks in June, and then we’ll come back and take two weeks in July,” he said. “We’ve got 840 kids pre-k to eighth grade signed up for summer school. There’ll be 40 at the pre-k center, about 400 at Glenview and then about 400 here at the junior high,” he added.

    Choudrant Elementary School is the best elementary school in the parish because Hogan dared to push back on bad decision-making from Farmerville Street. They’ve been antsy for him to retire so they could put someone in there that they could control. Let’s see how long those high scores last now that he’s gone.

    That Farmerville office needs to be a lot leaner so they can funnel the resources to the places we need it the most: the classrooms.

      What happened to Anne Marie?! Did she not apply?! Wow. What a poor decision on the part of LPSB.

    Central office just gets bigger and bigger.

      In any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people:

      Those who are devoted to the goals of the organization and those dedicated to the organization itself.

      The second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization. – Jerry Pournelle
