Today (Nov. 8), the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) released the 2017-2018 School Performance Scores (SPS), school letter grades, and progress index scores. Scores revealed that nearly 80 percent of district schools received a progress index score of “A” or “B” for the 2017- 2018 school year.

“This year’s School Performance Scores, particularly the newer Progress Index Score, reflect the hard work of our teachers and students in Orleans Parish. Progress is being made and we need to continue building from that foundation,” said Orleans Parish School Board Superintendent of Schools Dr. Henderson Lewis, Jr. “This is a new day and a new district, and these scores will serve as the new baseline for our unified district.”

Of the schools in the district, not including those that were recently closed or are alternative schools, 61 percent received a score of “C” or better.

“These gains are modest, but important because they tell us that we are headed in the right direction. We know that we still have a long way to go, but this board is committed to doing what is necessary for the students and families of our city,” said OPSB President John A. Brown, Sr.

On Tuesday, November 19, 2019, the Orleans Parish School Board will consider the impact of increased property assessments in the city and decide whether to roll millages forward to meet financial needs. There will be a public hearing at 3:00pm and a special board meeting that same day at 5:30pm. The Millage FAQ flyer explains how public schools in Orleans parish are funded and how a millage roll forward will further impact of schools.

Here are some helpful tips from NOLA Public Schools' Office of Student Support & Attendance on how you can take part in making sure our students are in school everyday as part of the 2019-2020 academic year's "Strive for Less than 5" absences and tardies attendance awareness campaign.
