Superintendent Councils

In May of this year, Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley set out to see the Jefferson Parish Public School System (JPPSS) with a fresh set of eyes through his 100 day-plan. During his first 100 days he created councils to gather stakeholder input for important decisions within the district. These councils compliment the work that is already taking place to make Jefferson Parish the most improved district in the state of Louisiana.
