  • 2020 Census

    Posted by web administrator on 9/25/2020

    Every home has received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Louisiana’s self-response rate is just under 57 percent, which is below the national average. There are a number of parishes where the rate is in the 30s and 20s. Please consider using your system’s communications channels to encourage employees, families and other stakeholders to complete the 2020 Census.

    The 2020 Census count impacts the federal funds that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students and younger children, such as:

    • Special education, Head Start, after-school programs, and classroom technology
    • Food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches
    • Maternal and child health programs
    • Planning, preparedness and recovery efforts for national emergencies, including COVID-19

    Self-responses, which can be completed online, by phone or by mail until September 30, ensures federal funding to support Louisiana students.

    The Department encourages school systems to explore the 2020 Census Toolbox to find general resources and activities specially designed to be engaging and appropriate for each grade level, from counting for kindergarteners to examining career statistics for high schoolers.

  • Virtual Learning Expectations

    Posted by web administrator on 7/31/2020

    Elementary Virtual Classroom Expectations

    In order to ensure our elementary children thrive within virtual learning, they will follow a normal instructional schedule. Teachers will provide the students with a daily schedule since schedules vary from school to school. Students will be expected to log-in to their computers at 8:00 AM. Teachers will deliver direct instruction to students throughout the day. However, they will not remain on the computer all day from 8:00 AM- 3:00 PM. For example, students may be instructed to complete an activity in a workbook or in their Class Notebooks in the Microsoft Teams app. The teacher will then set a time to meet back in the class to review the work. This type of cycle can be repeated numerous times throughout the lesson. The students will get breaks between classes, have recess time, lunch time, bathroom breaks, and even a 40 – 45 minute break where they can do things around the house or outside to take the place of PE, library or art. Teachers and students have a segment of the day for intervention and remediation time. During this time, assignments will be given and time will be provided so the teacher can schedule small group intervention or remediation with students. Students may be asked to read independently or to work on Zearn, if they are not working in a small group with the teacher. Additionally, teachers will be available for office hours if parents and student have questions.

    Parents, you will be given more specific details. We are just wanting to give you an example day for an elementary virtual student, so that you know what to expect.

  • Scammers Cash in during the COVID Pandemic

    Posted by Lee Ann Hepler on 3/24/2021 12:00:00 PM

    It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to the virus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthykeep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your handsA few months ago, several vaccines became available, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.  


    Man holding laptop.  “Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion 


    According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt to swindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammed is simple 

    • Do not click on any links or open attachments.  
    • Do not call or use the number in the email or text.  
    • Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.  
    • Report scams to the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov.  

    In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
