The Caddo Parish School Board was again deadlocked on selecting with John Dilworth or Mary Nash Robinson.  So, they decided to start the process over and name Mary Nash Robinson as the interim superintendent.

Nash-Robinson will take over the helm of the school system on August 12th, the day after current Superintendent Dr. Gerald Dawkins' contract expires.

Nash-Robinson is currently the system's Chief of Staff.  She will earn the superintendent's salary while she serves in the interim role and will return to her current position when a new leader is chosen.  She also agreed to not reapply for the superintendent seat when the school board restarts its search.

No word on if John Dilworth plans to reapply for the position.  There is also no word on Dr. Gerald Dawkins' future plans.

The school board hopes to have a new search done in 90 days.
