Plaquemines Schools shuffle administrators as school year ends

After 25 years in administration at Belle Chasse Middle School, Principal Joe Williamson is retiring to more relaxing endeavors.

Williamson will stay on until mid-summer when he’ll turn the school over to Assistant Principal Kayla Clark. Belle Chasse Middle School employs two assistant principals, so the school district is currently searching for a replacement for Clark to work with Assistant Principal Jay Bouche’.

Plaquemines Schools Superintendent Denis Rousselle praised Williamson for guiding BCMS through a cultural sea change as social media became one of the dominant channels for communication among young people, then among old people. Rousselle said the constant scrutiny of social media means middle school students are growing up more publicly than ever before. Factoring in misinformation that sometimes spreads among parents makes social media a force that must be reckoned with.
