As a former member of the Orleans Parish School Board and a parent of three children in Public and Charter schools, I have vested interest in our education systems. My administration will continue to have regular meetings with the current superintendent and the immediate past superintendent of OPSB as I currently do now. My administration will adopt schools and allow our employees to mentor and tutor those kids attending the schools. We will also engage the leaders of all schools in our Parish with a summit to discuss the education needs of our community. On a quarterly basis, my administration will convene meetings with all K-12 school leaders to discuss issues and concerns around educating our children. We will also engage our college and university presidents to in a similar manner.
Adopt at least 3 underperforming schools and provide mentors, tutors and other resources to assist the students and the staff.
Continue to meet regularly with the Superintendent of Schools.
