  • St. Mary Students Outperform State in LEAP 2025 Testing

    Posted by District on 7/11/2018 9:00:00 AM

    According to accountability results released by the Louisiana Department of Education today, St. Mary students continue to demonstrate rates of academic performance that exceed state levels in most subject areas of the state-administered LEAP 2025 test.

    In English language arts and mathematics, St. Mary Parish students in Grades 3 through 8 exceeded state proficiency averages by scoring at the mastery or advanced achievement levels in four of the six tests. Students also performed similarly in social studies as the percentage of students scoring at or above the state proficient level was reported in four of the six tests administered.

    Superintendent Armato noted: “The acceleration of more rigorous learning standards and corresponding testing measures has allowed our students to show remarkable academic gains across core content areas. I am especially excited to see such positive results from one year to the next in response to the rise in expectations for students. St. Mary teachers, administrators, and instructional personnel are to be commended for their dedication in meeting the challenge and ensuring that consistent and aligned instruction exists in each classroom every day. Schools will continue to analyze scores to plan for the 2018-2019 school year in an effort to secure appropriate scheduling and application of remediation for individual students. St. Mary continues to excel and outperform the state, of which I am exceedingly proud.”

  • Requests for Blackboard Course Shells

    Posted by District on 6/28/2018

    St. Mary Parish classroom teachers using or wanting to use Blackboard to support face-to-face instruction should complete the SMP Blackboard Course Request form for the 2018-19 school year.

    • Courses created for an earlier year or semester cannot be reused since these courses have been archived and must be preserved for five years.
    • Teachers can request a "course copy," which retains all instructional content from a old course but removes all enrolled students and their submissions.
    • Teachers can also request a "new course," which will be a blank shell into which content can be placed or copied. 
    • All students in Grades 2-12 are part of the Blackboard database and available for teachers to enroll them in their classes.

  • FEMA Disaster Fraud

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 2/7/2018

    If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has someone called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?

    Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.

    • Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
    • When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
    • People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
    • Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.

    If you or someone you know may have fallen victim to or have knowledge of these types of frauds, visit the FEMA Disaster Fraud page for more information.
