PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) - After discovering Superintendent Ed Cancienne (KAHN’-si-en) is in contract negotiations to take over as the head of another school district, the Iberville Parish School Board decided to find an interim replacement to lead the district, at least until school starts.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1t0WuZr) the board held a three-hour special meeting Tuesday to iron out the details of its selection process.

Among the topics: establishing a timeline to replace Cancienne, who is poised to step in as schools superintendent in St. James Parish after nine years with Iberville; what qualifications the board wants to use to attract candidates; and whether a salary range should be included in any job announcements.

The interim superintendent will not take over until July 1.

The school board hopes to start interviews for the permanent job in mid-July.
