BATON ROUGE, La. - Louisiana's statewide public school board, the Board of 
Elementary and Secondary Education, has started its search for a new education 
superintendent. The long-time occupant of the job, John White, announced last 
week that he's leaving in mid-March. The board hires the superintendent. Its 
members took their oath of office for the new term Thursday, and then agreed to 
form a four-member panel that will nominate candidates for superintendent, 
recommend minimum qualifications and outline a process for decision-making. 
Louisiana's education superintendent oversees and sets policies governing more 
than 700,000 public school students across the state. White has been in the 
position since 2012.
