Leadership at Lycée Français resign amid labor law, administrative pay investigations

Published by

Two top administrators and a governing board member have resigned from Lycée Français de la Nouvelle Orléans, a popular French immersion charter school, following accusations that the school leaders had violated labor laws and fostered hostile environments for other employees.

Marina Schoen, the longtime CEO of Lycée Français, gave her notice in letters to staff and the school’s nonprofit board of directors on Friday, hours after she said Jethro Celestin, the school’s chief operating officer, will be leaving to “explore other professional opportunities.”
