Caddo School Superintendent Dr. Gerald Dawkins Is Out
A change is on the way for Caddo Parish public schools. The Board has voted 8-4 to not renew Superintendent Dr. Gerald Dawkins' contract.
He was asking the Board to extend the contract for another two years, but that is not going to happen. Many in the audience were shocked when the Board took the action. Dr. Dawkins has been in charge of Caddo Schools for 5 years. He left shortly after the meeting and had no comment. His contract expires in August. Board President Larry Ramsey tells KEEL News "Caddo Parish is a C school district and that's not good enough". He adds that "the morale among employees is at an all time low". KEEL News talked with Board President Larry Ramsey this morning.
The Board is expected to begin the search process immediately.
