School seeks interim head

Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans’ chief executive officer search committee has recommended the embattled charter school’s board hire an interim CEO for the coming year, a white flag of sorts in the school’s aggressive hunt to install a permanent leader this summer.

At a meeting last week, committee chairman Erin Greenwald said it was too late in the academic year to focus on finding a permanent CEO for the 340-student French curriculum school located Uptown.

“It’s not something that’s done in the summer. To be honest that may make it look a little desperate,” Greenwald said.

The school’s top pick for the permanent job declined the offer last month.
