ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - Rapides Parish principals and assistant principals have been announced for ten of the schools in the superintendent's newly passed community schools plan.
Leaderships and teams at some of the schools were changed and some stayed as they were before.
Executive Assistant Superintendent Kim Bennett said they had principals submit requests for where they would prefer to continue their leadership.
She said they met with principals Wednesday to announce their placements and they were all "very excited for their assignments".
Bennett said they placed principals based on area of expertise.
"Our first and foremost priority is to make sure we set our schools up for success, so we wanted to make sure we had the right leadership in place and wanted to match people's strengths."
She also said they have given teachers a week to submit their school requests before they begin to place them, and principals will be a part of that selection process.
