Brumley officially submits application for state superintendent | Around The Town

Cade Brumley

Jefferson Parish Schools Superintendent Cade Brumley has submitted an application to be the next state superintendent.

Brumley sent his application materials in Friday morning, ahead of the 5 p.m. deadline.

Brumley, 38, has been at the helm of the state’s largest and most diverse district since March of 2018. Before that, he was the superintendent in rural DeSoto Parish in northwest Louisiana.

He has also been a teacher and principal.

When outgoing state Superintendent John White announced last month that he was stepping down, Brumley was one of the first names floated as a possible successor.

He is the second confirmed candidate. Jessica Baghian, who has been an assistant state superintendent since 2014, has also applied for the job. 

During his time in Jefferson, Brumley has made a number of changes, none more notable than his shepherding of a 7.45-mill property tax proposal for teacher raises that passed in 2019.

He has also introduced a standardized curriculum across the district, created new Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade schools and introduced stipends for teachers in certain subjects and at troubled schools.

Around The Town will have more information on this developing story as it becomes available to us.
