Recovery School District Moves Deputy Superintendent to Caddo

Posted: Updated:

The first thing J-Delano Ford wants people to know is that he is not here to take over any school.

"In the past we have taken over schools, we did not come to Caddo to say this is what we are going to do. "

Ford is the new Deputy Superintendent of Transformation for the Recovery School District of Louisiana, his primary objective will be to determine how to help Caddo's most troubled schools.

 " The work that I am responsible for is solving the problem of those schools." said Ford.

Currently there are two Caddo Parish schools in the RSD, Linwood Public Charter and Linear Leadership Academy .

Ford told Education Reporter Eric James that, in addition to  Linwood and Linear, he will help Caddo solve problems at schools that don't meet performance standards. 

He says he will be working closely with the Caddo Parish School Board and with the community to help pull 15 Caddo Parish schools off the state's unacceptable list.

In an interview a couple of months ago, Superintendent John White told KTBS 3 News that he is not prepared to say which schools the state will takeover.

The RSD has made it no secret that they have been looking at schools in Caddo Parish.

Just before the start of the school year, 10 schools were removed from the list and are no longer up for consideration.
