Livingston Parish School Board Announces Search for New Superintendent


LIVINGSTON, La. – The Livingston Parish School Board announced at its meeting tonight (Thursday, Feb. 22) that it would begin its formal search for a new superintendent.


Superintendent Joe Murphy announced last fall that he would not be seeking a new contract upon the expiration of his current contract, which expires June 30, 2024.  Murphy has served as the system’s superintendent for the past five years and is retiring with 32 years of service.

Board President Steve Link said the district would begin the formal process of advertising in hopes of completing the process in the spring.

“This timeline will give our system time to transition between the administrations before the expiration of Mr. Murphy’s contract,” Board President Link said.

Murphy thanked board members for their support of his administration and pledged to help the new superintendent move into position in a seamless manner by ensuring that individual is involved in the decision-making prior to the start of the new fiscal year. Murphy also expressed his confidence that Livingston Parish Public Schools will continue to be a model of educational excellence moving forward.

“Our employees have been and will always be committed to Making A Difference Every Day,” he said.
