The St. Landry Parish School Board meeting was anything but simple with several motions to table and vote for a new superintendent.
The meeting went more than two and a half hours ending with a 7-4 motion to table, which means there is no vote while parish residents and educators continue to push for a finale to the superintendent search.
"Personally, I'm disappointed because it's just time to make a decision it's in the best interest of the children to make a decision," said North Elementary Principal Sandra Gamache.
One of the motions or votes of the evening was simply to elect interim Superintendent Joseph Cassimere, but he didn't garner the seven vote majority needed to win. But he stood in front of the board and audience and vowed to keep pushing for a victory.
"I don't quit and I don't get in a race to stop," said Cassimere.
School board member Charles Ross who voted for Cassimere this evening said it doesn't look good for the interim superintendent because certain board members have and probably will continue to deny Cassimere their vote and a majority.
"It's obviously against him and it's obvious we had two votes today," said Ross.
