NIET School of Excellence Recipient

Congratulations to our students, faculty, staff, and parents/guardians for their hard work and dedication! 

The National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET) announced Jefferson Parish Schools’ Woodmere Elementary as one of its ‘Schools of Promise’ for its continued effort to strengthen instructional practices and sustained student success. 

Recipients are selected by NIET for making instructional excellence the cornerstone of school improvement; planning for regular professional learning focused on the daily needs of teachers and students; creating a culture of collaboration and reflection; and creating systems that maximize the talents of teacher leaders and administrators to drive student growth. Leaders can spend the money as they choose to support their educators.
