It is the mission of the Plaquemines Parish Public School System to provide the highest quality instruction for every student so that we produce the best authentic readers, writers, thinkers and listeners.
It is the vision of the Plaquemines Parish Public School System that:
All students will achieve at high levels in the presence of powerful teaching.
Teaching and learning will improve if adults engage in collaborative learning, planning, and open analysis of instructional practice.
Decisions about teaching and learning will be evidence-based and address the brutal reality.
A focus on literacy and numeracy will strengthen teaching and learning across all grade levels and subjects.
Taking actions to provide "whatever it takes" will ensure every student's success.
Embracing its diversity, the Plaquemines Parish School Board dedicates itself to educating all students to their fullest potential. The PPSB is committed to equity because excellence for all students requires equity.
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
