East Baton Rouge Parish School Board has selected Sito Narcisse as superintendent following the abrupt resignation by Leslie Brown. After hours of public comment and debate over his qualifications and record in other districts, the board voted 5-4 in favor of him over Adam Smith who was serving as interim superintendent. Reps. Mark Bellue, Jill Dyason, Mike Gaudet, Dadrius Lanus, and Evelyn Jackson-Ware voted for Narcisse, while Dawn Collins, Tramelle Howard, Connie Bernard, and David Tatman stood by Smith who is a 24-year veteran of the school system. Because Narcisse lacks the minimum five year requirement to automatically receive certification as superintendent, the district will need to hire a chief academic officer when his contract begins Feb. 1.
