MONROE, La. (AP) — Monroe City School Board member Rodney McFarland, who serves as the district’s superintendent search committee chairman, says he is pleased with the number and quality of applications received.

The board has received 19 applications — eight local candidates, five in-state and six out-of-state — in an effort to find a replacement for former Superintendent Kathleen Harris. Those applications will soon be reviewed by the board-appointed, 21-member community screening committee.

The News-Star reports the group is set to hold its first meeting on Jan 14.

McFarland says he hopes the new superintendent can help improve the district’s performance.
