One of the major commitments of Dr. Brumley’s 100-day plan was achieved this week when the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) and the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Educationm (BESE) approved plans for the JPPSS Transformation Network. The approved redesign grant will provide the district with an additional $1.7 million in year one with the opportunity for continued funding in subsequent years. The funds will provide extra support and resources for our highest-need schools as part of an equity agenda. The Transformation Network is one of the commitments outlined in Dr. Brumley’s plan, Love to Learn; Learn to Lead: A 100-Day Investment for a Stronger JPPSS.
