EBR school board approves 2 hires
BATON ROUGE - The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board has unanimously approved initial reorganization plans of its incoming superintendent, including the hiring of two new top administrators.
Bernard Taylor, who was selected in March and whose first official day isn't until Monday, persuaded the board on June 7 to adopt a new organizational chart that includes at least five new job positions.
Four days later, the school board filled two of the new jobs - deputy superintendent for innovation and reform executive assistant to the superintendent for parent and community engagement. They are expected to start working July 1.
