Shreveport LA (KMSS) - — Theodis Goree was selected last week as Caddo Parishes’ next Superintendent.
The Shreveport native comes from the school system in Mansfield, Texas.
Board Member Carl Pierson says while this process has been rough, it’s time for the school system to move forward.
"We are one board, one voice and then that we can work with the superintendent so that we can help him make a difference in this system."
Pierson voted in favor for Goree to be superintendent.
The selection came after Tim Magner dropped out of the race after the board deadlocked on a tied 6-6 vote.. Goree was then selected with a 9-3 vote.
