Dear NOLA-PS Community Members

Dear NOLA-PS Community Members,

The new school year is just around the corner. As a parent and educator, I know the juggling act it takes in a normal summer to get a child ready for class: purchasing uniforms, filling out paperwork, lining up bus schedules or carpools, multiple trips to stores for school supplies.

But this is not a normal summer. On top of this seasonal back-to-school ritual, we must continue to keep our children safe from the COVID-19 pandemic, now and throughout the 2021-2022 school year.

What is different from last summer is our shared experience. We have been here before. We know how to do this. We did it, together, and we will do it again.

Our children deserve the best education we can offer them. That means being in school, with their friends and their teachers. From the American Academy of Pediatrics on down, we all know that in-person learning is essential to developing the whole child, academically, socially, and emotionally.

Just as we did with our Roadmap to Reopening last summer, we have a plan to preserve in-person learning and keep our students safe. Please review our 2021-2022 COVID Care Guidance for more details.

Orleans Parish Schools Continue to Progress

Today (Nov. 8), the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) released the 2017-2018 School Performance Scores (SPS), school letter grades, and progress index scores. Scores revealed that nearly 80 percent of district schools received a progress index score of “A” or “B” for the 2017- 2018 school year.

“This year’s School Performance Scores, particularly the newer Progress Index Score, reflect the hard work of our teachers and students in Orleans Parish. Progress is being made and we need to continue building from that foundation,” said Orleans Parish School Board Superintendent of Schools Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. “This is a new day and a new district, and these scores will serve as the new baseline for our unified district.”

Of the schools in the district, not including those that were recently closed or are alternative schools, 61 percent received a score of “C” or better.

“These gains are modest, but important because they tell us that we are headed in the right direction. We know that we still have a long way to go, but this board is committed to doing what is necessary for the students and families of our city,” said OPSB President John A. Brown, Sr.
