Superintendent's Message

I am excited to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year!  Our opening theme this year was “Game On!”  We welcomed hundreds of educators back with a pep rally that celebrated teachers and the unwavering spirit they all exemplify.  As Superintendent, I am extremely proud and honored to be part of this “team”, and I am asking for your commitment to help us achieve our mission of preparing all students to compete globally.

There is so much about which we can be proud.  Our teachers continue to strive through hours of continuing education and professional development, our administrators continue to work collaboratively to improve teaching and learning, and our students continue to exceed expectations, making Plaquemines Parish one of the highest ranking districts in Louisiana.

It is a team effort.  We know that work toward graduation begins from the time a child enters kindergarten. Graduating students on time, prepared for college or work, takes each of us – working together and putting students first.

Much time, effort, and teamwork have helped us achieve the successes we have experienced in the past, but this game has not ended. We have to keep moving forward, guided by a vision for student learning that promises to provide "whatever it takes" to ensure every student's success.

In order to achieve this vision, we need to hold high expectations of our students and of each other. We have to approach challenges with a problem-solving mindset. We have to be collaborative – people who work together will win. We must remember that the future of our children and our community rests with us, making the stakes high.

I am looking forward to a year filled with learning, growth, achievement, and great experiences for each and every student. I offer thanks to each of you in advance for the great things to come as we work together for the benefit of all our students and our community.

Denis Rousselle, Superintendent
