• Superintendent's Special Education Council

    The Superintendent’s Special Education Council will discuss and provide meaningful feedback to the Superintendent regarding special education policies, procedures, and resources. Additionally, this council will be tasked with increasing the level of support and collaboration through engagement and education to the community at large as it relates to special education in Jefferson Parish Schools. This council will advise and advocate, not decide policy.
