I would like to take this opportunity to discuss the changing of the guard in Vermilion Parish when it comes to leadership. The first change is with the Superentendent in which for the 1st time in the History of VPSB, Jerome Puyau who was a Special Ed teacher at Erath High will become the new Superentendent.
What does this mean for Vermilion Parish Schools? I am very excited that when the School Board selected Mr. Puyau back in March, it meant that someone with a background in Special Ed would be in charge. This is near and dear to my heart because as a product of Vermilion Parish Public Schools, our Special Education program was the 1st in the state to not only intergrate but to include many different 1sts.
I wish Mr. Puyau the very best because having a superentendent with a background in Special Ed will pay dividends.
