After meeting publicly for seven minutes, the board of the International School of Louisiana retreated into a closed 50-minute session to discuss the employment contract for its chief executive officer, Sean Wilson — making the March meeting the third in a row requiring an executive session to discuss the contract.

Following the executive session, board president Matt Amoss conceded the directors have been “working pretty slowly.” Board members did not finalize the contract’s terms of agreement in time for a vote.

Wilson and the board agreed to amend Wilson’s current contract to give the board an additional 30 days to finalize the new one.

In other news, the school is still interviewing applicants for the vacant director of finance position. Meanwhile, the school is paying $1,000 a week for six to eight hours of work by a consultant from Academic Resource Solutions, Wilson said.

The board’s next meeting will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, at 1400 Camp St.
