CLINTON — East Feliciana Parish S uperintendent Carlos J. Sam introduced members of his new administrative team to School Board members Tuesday.
The board last month approved Sam’s plan for reorganizing the top administrative staff for his first year as superintendent.
The administrators are:
Latrice Smith, director of exceptional student support services. She has taught special education classes in East Feliciana and East Baton Rouge parishes and also has administrative experience in special education in the two parishes.
Keisha Netterville, executive director of human resources and business services. Netterville has teaching and administrative experience in East Feliciana, East Baton Rouge and the Recovery School District in Baton Rouge. She served two years as East Feliciana Middle School’s principal and most recently worked with Friendship Capitol High School, a Baton Rouge charter school.
Deshonda Coleman, supervisor of ancillary and instructional support services. She has taught in Winn, East Baton Rouge and East Feliciana parishes and served as an assistant principal of Istrouma High School. Her duties include supervising parish athletic programs, and she has worked with a nonprofit organization to mentor athletes in academic areas.
Kim Germany, executive director of school improvement and instructional services. She has a doctorate in education from Southeastern Louisiana University. She has been principal of Pointe Coupee Central High School and came to East Feliciana from the Zachary school system, where she was an assistant principal of its high school and administrator of its career academy.
James Bell, who has served as operations chief in East Feliciana under two superintendents, will be the supervisor of operational services .
Knight Roddy, who is beginning his 28th year in education, continues in his position as supervisor of federal programs.
On another matter, the board voted to seek commercial appraisals on two adjoining tracts fronting Plank Road in Clinton that include the old Clinton High School and several other old school buildings.
Building Committee Chairman Mitch Harrell said a local company has expressed interest in buying the site.
The appraisals are the first move toward a possible sale of the land.
The board also set property tax millages of 3.34 mills and 17 mills for 2015. The smaller millage is allowed by the state constitution, while the larger was authorized in a special election. The board is asking voters to renew the 17-mill tax and two sales taxes in a special Oct. 24 election.
