New Pointe Coupee superintendent sets ambitious agenda
NEW ROADS- In his first week as Pointe Coupee Parish's new school superintendent, Kevin Lemoine has already toured all five of the district's campuses, met with principals and key staff and started crunching numbers for the district's next fiscal year budget.
Lemoine's agenda for his first year as superintendent includes reorganizing the district's central office, shaving expenses to shrink an impending deficit in the district's 2015-16 budget and establishing a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics program at Pointe Coupee Central High.
Lemoine, who left his position as acting superintendent of the special school district with the state Department of Education, is walking into a school district that has been on a gradual climb toward academic success.
