Even the potential of a Superintendent transition can cause stress and uncertainty in a community. While Dr. Narcisse is not headed to Broward, the reality of his application has revealed a gap between the board and administrative leadership of EBR. Navigating that gap, demonstrating readiness to ensure continuity of leadership, and reassuring our community will require that this board, united, leads in this moment of uncertainty. This board, and its leaders and supporters, are up to the task ahead. As it was before Dr. Narcisse’s application to Broward, so it is today, the clarity of vision that this board has for what it wants to achieve and its commitment to working together and with the community to achieve it, will ensure steadiness and progress for the children and families of Baton Rouge.
