An even dozen people have now applied for the Lafayette Parish School System superintendent’s job.
The latest application comes from Ayinde Rudolph, who most recently served as an associate director of school transportation for Buffalo Promise Neighborhood, a public-private partnership of three neighborhood schools in Buffalo, New York. Earlier this month, Rudolph was one of three finalists for the superintendent’s job in Salem, Massachusetts.
The names of the other 11 applicants were released on Monday by interim superintendent Burnell LeJeune. Based on the advice of the School Board’s attorneys, submitted applications were not opened until after the postmark deadline of March 27. It’s possible that more applications may be received this week that met the postmark deadline.
The School Board will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday to decide whether to interview all applicants or how to pare down the list for interviews.
The board plans to make its selection by the end of May — ahead of LeJeune’s summer retirement.
