LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Three people will be interviewed on April 22 for the Lafayette Parish superintendent position.

The Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/1Hjg18j ) the Lafayette Parish School Board will choose the three applicants at a special meeting April 9.

So far, 12 people have submitted applications for the job. However, school board President Tommy Angelle estimated that up to five applicants do not have a superintendent certification. Board Attorney Bob Hammonds said that certification is not required by state law, but the board can make it a requirement.

The interviews will happen in public session.

Burnell LeJeune has served as interim superintendent since November, taking office shortly after the board terminated Pat Cooper’s contract. LeJeune will retire this summer and has not applied for the permanent position.
