Louisiana’s Lafayette Parish to permanently employ interim school superintendent

The interim leader of public schools in a southwest Louisiana parish has been selected to serve as the district’s next superintendent.

The Lafayette Parish School Board voted unanimously Thursday to elevate Francis Touchet Jr. to the permanent position, The Advocate reported. He has served in the interim role since July after former Superintendent Irma Trosclair resigned.

Touchet joined the district in July 2019 but has been an educator for more than 30 years, according to his application. He has served as the associate Lafayette Parish superintendent, focusing on district accountability and academic support. He also has worked in various roles, including as a network leader with the Louisiana Department of Education, where he worked with more than 40 districts on district-wide initiatives.
