    Discovery Days

    Jefferson Parish Schools Superintendent Dr. James Gray continues the tradition of hosting Discovery Days to understand the district from as many viewpoints as possible. Each Discovery Day begins with a learning-walk around the school, a meeting with that school’s principal, faculty meeting and Virtual Town Hall with families and community members. As superintendent of the largest school district in Louisiana, Discovery Days are a way for Dr. Gray to engage and stay connected with the communities he serves. The schools included in Discovery Days are drawn at random by each board member.
