The Natchitoches Parish School Board held a very brief special called meeting Thursday, June 18 in order to approve the board’s new social media policy, The 4 page policy was the sole agenda item and was passed unanimously after a brief explanation by Superintendent Grant Eloi.
A motion was made to amend the agenda to include two other items, granting permission for the superintendent to enter negotiations with the Rapides Foundation and to accept a $142,000.00 grant from the Rapides Foundation for professional development. Both amendments passed unanimously as well.
The School Board also took the opportunity to welcome its newest employee, Ms. Chynna Paris who will serve as the district communications manager. Her duties will be to oversee the district’s and schools’ social media presence. She has already started her job and is hard at work revising and constructing Facebook and web pages. The district’s new social media presence will debut on July 1. Ms. Paris is a 2019 LSU alumnae with a degree in Public Relations. She is also a graduate of Lake Charles’ Sam Houston High School.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal would like to welcome Ms. Paris to our community and wish her every success in her new career!
