ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - The Rapides Parish School Board is expected to select 10 semifinalists to become the district's next superintendent at a special meeting on Monday.
Applications for superintendent of Rapides schools will become public at the meeting after the Board receives them from the private search firm the board hired in August.
The Town Talk reports the board intends to accept and discuss the applications while in executive session and later vote in open session on the 10 candidates to be interviewed.
Interim Superintendent Gerald Woodard will draw candidates' names at random to select the order for interviews.
Personnel chairwoman Janet Dixon said the candidates will be interviewed March 11-15.
