Listen & Learn Town Hall Series with JP Schools Superintendent, Dr. James Gray

JP Schools Family,

Input from our stakeholders helps us make better decisions as we move forward together. That’s why I am excited to continue hosting our Listen & Learn Town Halls this school year. These are four town halls where I want to answer your questions, hear your concerns, and understand how you view Jefferson Parish Schools. 

All events are open to the public. They will take place on alternating sides of the river, and interpreters will be available. The first one is on September 20 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Gretna #2 Academy. You can see the full schedule at the end of this message or at

These are informal, open forums without an agenda. You can ask questions, offer suggestions, share insight, or just listen and learn along with us. 

I’m looking forward to these conversations and hearing from you about what’s working, what we can do better or differently and how you feel we can move forward together.

Dr. James Gray
