School Board Member Seth Bloom feels that the selection of a new Superintendent to take over the Orleans Parish School Board is the most crucial decision that this new board has to tackle this term. The new superintendent should and will reorganize the administration and be an effective leader to provide excellent governance over the Orleans Parish school system. Mr. Bloom feels that although community involvement is key, a national search firm is the best option to help lead the charge in finding the best candidate to provide citizens the best possible superintendent. Although community input is essential to the process, the selection of a superintendent is a business decision and should be selected by education professionals instead of religious and community activists. Superintendents need to have a unique set of skills in order to take this district to a new reform level. Bringing in a national firm will alleviate any local politics and also ensure an organized and transparent process to select the best person for the job. At the board meeting on April 23rd, many community supporters came out in favor of the national process and the board unanimously agreed to put an RFQ out in order to find a firm suitable to begin the selection proces
