GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) Former Grand Rapids Superintendent Bernard Taylor has landed a new job in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board voted unanimously Thursday night to offer him the position of superintendent. Taylor was one of two finalists selected during a March 15th meeting.
Taylor has been on academic leave from GRPS since late December. He negotiated a $400,000 exit agreement with the district to depart before the end of the school year. He no longer had the support of several board members, especially those most recently elected.
Teresa Weatherall Neal is acting Superintendent of the school district.
