The Greater New Orleans Foundation released New Orleans School Partnership Study: What Our Students Need and How We Can Help. In partnership with NOLA Public Schools and funding support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and Baptist Community Ministries, the new report identifies some of our students’ most urgent needs and a roadmap for how schools and community partners can increase resources, coordination, partnership, and investments to improve student support and performance.

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.

As our community of schools grows and changes, NOLA Public Schools is committed to adapting in ways that best support our students. In this spirit, we will be updating the funding formula for schools, known as the District Level Funding Allocation (DFLA), to reflect the latest student demographics and educational needs ahead of the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years. This is a regular process that can occur every two years and must be approved by the Orleans Parish School Board. We will provide several opportunities for public engagement, and we welcome suggestions, comments and questions from our community throughout this process. Please revisit in the future for more information.

NOLA Public Schools is accepting applications for membership on the Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC).

The Special Education Advisory Council is seeking two (2) teachers, paraeducators, or principals to serve on the council.

NOLA Public Schools, in collaboration with community partners, recently launched a web-based resource guide designed to assist students with disabilities transitioning into life after their high school careers. The resource guide is a virtual substitute for NOLA-PS’ third annual NOLA-PS Transition Resource Fair, which had to be canceled this year due to the COVID-19 public health crisis
