Under the guidance of Dr. Bagwell, district staff members have put together a Professional Development Planning Document for Summer 2018 and the 2018-19 school year. This document is a "living" document that will be updated during the year and can be used for your planning purposes.
Users can download a copy for their own use from the document's location in Blackboard's St. Mary Parish Intranet site by following this path: Professional Development | District Staff Development Links | Professional Development Planning Document (2018-19).

St. Mary Parish is a school district committed to providing a quality education for all students. The district has worked to develop and maintain a reputation as an elite, proactive, and successful school district dedicated to student achievement as its top priority. As superintendent, it is my responsibility to place students at the forefront of all decision-making while supporting teachers with the necessary resources for effective instruction. Working together with stakeholders, my goal is to respect, support, and set high expectations for all employees to ensure a valuable, productive, and safe educational environment.
I personally invite you to discover St. Mary Parish from this virtual environment. In addition to district and school directories, the website provides helpful information such as school board policies, cafeteria menus, bus routes, and links to individual websites for each of our 23 schools. Parents are encouraged to obtain login information from their child’s school to access attendance and class grades through the Student Progress Center.

FEMA Disaster Fraud
Posted by Susan Dupre on 2/7/2018
If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has some 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.
