Q&A: New Orleans is Taking a New Approach to Find Its next Superintendent

Kids and teacher in a classroom

What is your vision for a new superintendent in New Orleans, and what are the innovations you are putting in place for the search?

We are extremely interested in making sure our next leader is a visionary: equity-minded, anti-racist, experienced. That’s the goal. To get there, we have to include the community.

We are trying to be extremely transparent about this process of going through a superintendent search. The board is leading this process in partnership with the community. We are ensuring that the folks who are most impacted — our students, our families, our educators, our administrators — are kept up to date as transparently as possible.
