Superintendent's Teacher Council
The Superintendent’s Teacher Council is designed to capture teachers’ insights, suggestions and perspectives on critical issues in Jefferson Parish Schools. The council will work to inform the Superintendent and district with qualitative and quantitative data that will enable us to make better instructional and administrative decisions. These decisions will ultimately assist us in becoming the most improved district in the state.
Teachers must have an Effective Emerging or better evaluation to be considered for membership. Following an application process, all eligible teachers will enter a lottery process to select the 20 council membership participants in each organizational level: 10 elementary, 5 middle school, and 5 high school teachers.
