Saturday, October 3 will be the next big day in the search for a new head of the St Tammany School System. Five local veteran school administrators will face questions from the School Board in public interview sessions. The candidates, all current employees of the district, will have about an hour each to make their case and take questions from the 15-member School Board as it chooses a new leader for the fourth-largest public school system in the state. A random drawing determined that the two principals seeking the job, Northshore High’s Frank Jabbia and Covington High’s Robert DeRoche, will be the first and second to be interviewed. Amiee Lemane, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction, will be third. Corwin Robinson, an administrator for the district’s alternative schools program, will be fourth. Dorable Dangerfield, a supervisor in the curriculum and instruction department, will be the final candidate. Local state representative Mark Wright has been vocal in his criticism of the all “in house” group of applicants and questioned how well the job was advertised. But the board has already voted to interview all five of the applicants and to decide at its Oct. 8 meeting whether to choose a second round of interviews or make a hiring decision that night.
