News and Announcements

Important Message From The Superintendent

Due to the massive efforts of all Jefferson Davis Parish education stakeholders our district was able to show significant growth on the 2017 state assessments/evaluations. We have improved our state ranking to 15th best District Performance Score and for the first time we have achieved a district grade of an "A". Our district earned the fourth best growth rate in the state!! We also have 4 individual schools that improved a whole letter grade!! Congratulations to all faculty, staff and leadership positions who came together to achieve these wonderful result.

We believe that the massive efforts of the RTI 2.0 initiative and the commitment to a collective responsibility for student achievement played instrumental roles in our district improvement. These results confirm our beliefs about the current work being done and strengthen our resolve to maintain and enhance the course.

While we want to take some time to celebrate this result with all stakeholders, the bar for student achievement has already been raised for next year by the state and we have only scratched the surface of what we will achieve in the future.

Congratulations again for your stellar achievements and thank you for all the hard (yet very productive) work!
