    Listen and Learn Town Halls

    We value input from our stakeholders as their feedback and insight helps us make better decisions as we move forward together. The purpose of the town hall meetings is to provide an opportunity for families, employees and community members to have open-ended conversations with Superintendent Dr. James Gray. During these six town halls, he will answer questions, hear concerns, and understand how our stakeholders view Jefferson Parish Schools. 

    These meetings are structured as informal open forums. There are no set agendas for any meeting, and any participant may ask a question or offer a suggestion. All town hall meetings are open to the public.

    In partnership with the Jefferson Federation of Teachers, three of the town halls will focus on issues important to employees. The other three will focus on families and the community.

    The meetings will take place on alternating sides of the river, and interpreters will be available. Each meeting will run from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

    Given limited capacity, attendees should register in advance using the links below.
