The State Board of Education approved Friday the list of names recommended by Commissioner Johnny Key to serve as LRSD Community Advisory Board (CAB) members.  The CAB consists of representatives from each of the seven (7) LRSD school zones.  Members and their zones are listed below:

Chauncey Holloman Pettis – Zone 1

Maria Chavarria-Garcia – Zone 2

Melanie Fox – Zone 3

Jeff Wood – Zone 4

Larry Clark – Zone 5

Anthony Hampton – Zone 6

Freddie Scott – Zone 7

Members will serve under the supervision and direction of the commissioner until LRSD is returned to local control, or until the State Board annexes, consolidates, or reconstitutes the school district.  The CAB will meet monthly with the superintendent, conduct hearings and make recommendations for student and personnel hearings, build community capacity, and submit reports to the State Board and Commissioner of Education.  Meetings will be held in the LRSD Student Center, 810 W. Markham, on the second Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. (Any changes to the date, time or location will be announced.)

The CAB will host its first meeting on Thursday, August 11, 2016.  To see the list of schools by zone, click here.
