Dr. Brumley Outlines What’s Next in 100-Day Plan Report

In his first few months on the job, Jefferson Parish Public School System Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley placed top-rated learning materials into every school, funded raises for teachers and support staff, secured millions in additional support for students and schools that need it most, and held meaningful conversations in just about every corner of the parish.

Those are just some of Dr. Brumley’s accomplishments during his 100-day entry plan, Love to Learn; Learn to Lead: A 100-Day Investment for a Stronger JPPSS. Dr. Brumley shared what he learned, what he accomplished, and what’s next during his 100-Day Plan Presentation & Official Swearing-In Ceremony tonight at the JPPSS Administration Building.

“As a newcomer to Jefferson, it was critical for me to learn as much as possible about the system,” said Dr. Brumley. “I did not want to make assumptions; instead I needed first-hand information to drive future decision-making.”

Dr. Brumley outlined a number of goals for the upcoming school year. He wants to improve student outcomes in 11 different areas that would impact children in every grade. Some of these areas include LEAP and EOC testing, Career and Technical Education credentials, ACT scores, Advanced Placement courses, graduation rates, student attendance, and discipline referrals.

Dr. Brumley views the $250 pay raise for teachers and support staff as just a start. He is committed to improving employee compensation in an equitable and responsible way.

“Every day there is a teacher or support staff worker doing something amazing for children,” said Dr. Brumley. “We have to make sure we’re paying them a competitive salary that makes sense.”

Dr. Brumley presented targeted priorities for the upcoming school year. They are spread across seven categories: teaching and learning; culture, climate, and student support; talent; equity; engagement; operations and finance; and organizational vision. His full plan is available at jpschools.org.

“I learned so much about our system and have worked really hard to incorporate stakeholder input into a plan for the upcoming year,” said Dr. Brumley. “I’m super optimistic about what we can accomplish together.”
