Superintendent's Message

On Monday, August 21, 2023, the Plaquemines Parish School Board appointed me as the Interim Superintendent of Plaquemines Parish Schools. I am extremely honored and grateful for the Board's vote of confidence. I know firsthand how an excellent education can transform the lives of students, their families, and the community, and will continue to serve the people of Plaquemines Parish with pride and a steadfast heart.

I want to express my gratitude to the School Board and to everyone who engaged in the Interim Superintendent search process. We will move forward and build upon the foundation of excellence Mr. Rousselle has laid for us all.
I can be contacted at [email protected] and welcome communication from all of our stakeholders.
Dr. Shelley Ritz
