DeSoto Superintendent to announce retirement

Posted: Updated:
DESOTO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

DeSoto Parish Schools Superintendent Walter Lee is expected to announce his retirement at Thursday night's regularly scheduled monthly school board meeting.

"DeSoto is doing very well. I prefer to go out while the system is doing well," Lee says.

Lee says his retirement will go into effect at the will of the school board. This could mean it could go into effect immediately, this week, or at the end of his current contract in 2013. However, he says he expects the board will allow him to step down this week.

Lee has served for 21 years as DeSoto Parish Superintendent, 12 years as Caddo Superintendent and 12 years as Caddo Parish Schools Business Manager.
