Casey Comeaux, who has spent her entire career as a teacher and administrator in Eunice schools, is the EJHS principal.

Grantham has attended board regular and committee meetings during the past two months.

On Thursday night Grantham presided over the approval of the operating budget for the fiscal year that began July 1.

Grantham was also selected by board members to serve as the representative for the District on the St. Landry Parish Sales and Use Tax Commission.

The District is the official sales tax collection agency for St. Landry Parish.

Other Board Meeting Decisions

In a related Board finance issue, Kolder, Slaven and Company LLC was chosen to continue providing auditing services for the School District.

Grantham did not specify how much the District is scheduled to pay for auditing services.

Jenkins noted that Aug. 11 is the first day of classes for District schools.

Also school workers are scheduled to report for meetings beginning Aug. 3, Jenkins said.
