NEW ORLEANS - East Feliciana School System superintendent Henderson Lewis was named the new superintendent of the Orleans Parish School Board Tuesday night.
Lewis' hiring comes more than two years after the process started.
Lewis, 40, is also a member of the St. Bernard Parish School Board.
He sold himself for the new job with a first 180 days on the job plan which will focus on teacher accountability and administrative overhauls of the school system.
The East Feliciana school system is rated "C." The Orleans system is rated "A." That includes only schools managed by the public school system. Other public schools are managed by the Recovery School District.
Recently, Lewis talked to WBRZ about his future with either school system.
