Jefferson Davis Parish School Closure Updates

March 18, 2020

 WE RECEIVED INFORMATION FROM GOVERNOR EDWARDS AND BESE PRESIDENT BETH HOLLOWAY that policy waivers approved by BESE are now in place for all Louisiana schools.  

School Performance scores, Early Childhood Performance Profiles, District Performance Scores, Teacher Observations/Evaluations (other than recording completed information in the appropriate data system), VAM scores, graduation requirements for seniors, requirements for mandatory instructional minutes, industry based credentials, End of Course exams for graduation seniors and promotional requirements for grades 4 and 8 have all been waived for the 2019-2020 school year.

The state is seeking federal approval to excuse us from state wide LEAP testing.  Federal approval is required because testing is a component of the federally approved ESSA plan.

By request of numerous board members and the community we will begin to implement some community feeding sites for students.  We anticipate up to four locations by next Monday where we will provide  breakfast and lunch to students in a grab and go type situation.

Updates with specific feeding site locations will be posted when all plans are finalized.
