Superintendent's Message

“Spring Forward!” This phrase is commonly used to remind everyone to set their clocks one hour ahead for Daylight Saving Time. For me, this phrase also represents the opportunity for Plaquemines Parish Public Schools to “Spring Forward” in education. Our students, teachers, staff, and administrators have been working very hard in preparation for the standardized tests that will be administered this spring.
The “Louisiana Believes” initiative which includes a new Common Core Curriculum and Compass evaluation system, gives our district a new challenge, one that I believe, together, we are ready to conquer. Attendance, punctuality, a good night’s sleep, and a good breakfast can all help contribute to a student’s success. Our students also need kind and encouraging words of support and faith.
Please join me in supporting our students as they take the lead in our “Spring Forward!”
 
Denis Rousselle, Superintendent
