Dr. Mark Porterie is sole finalist for PAISD superintendent position
PORT ARTHUR - Earlier this year, the Port Arthur Independent School District named Dr. Mark Porterie as it's interim superintendent.
It came after Dr. Johnny Brown was released from his contract.
At Tuesday night's board meeting, Dr. Porterie was named the sole finalist for the superintendent position. He has been serving as the interim superintendent since Dr. Brown left at the end of June.
The board has 21 days to officially name Dr. Porterie superintendent of the district.
