After a tumultous week during which the state’s Recovery School District took over Pointe Coupee Central High School, members of the parish School Board conducted a brief meeting Thursday and quickly adjourned.
But as Thursday’s board meeting began, board President James Cline announced that, “as recommend by Superintendent Dan Rawls,” he was requesting that four of 15 agenda items be deferred, including discussion of Pointe Coupee Central. No board member voted against the recommendation.All board members met with State Education Superintendent Paul Pastorek at Pointe Coupee Central High last weekend to discuss its status after chalking up six consecutive years of unacceptable academic performance. All board members also attended one or more meetings of the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and its committees as the responsibility for operating Pointe Coupee Central High School changed hands.
