LAE plans state-wide sessions

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The LAE says that recent changes in public school policies in Louisiana have drastically changed the landscape of the K-12 public education system.

In order to bring issues  the organization perceives to light, leaders of the LAE will host a series of education forums across the state. These forums will consist of open discussions between a panel of local education stakeholders -- teachers, parents, school administrations, community leaders, and legislative members -- with participants focusing on the most pressing issues currently impacting our public schools. Every community member is encouraged to participate in this very important discussion.

The forums will be held between Monday, February 18th and Wednesday, February 27th.

Registration at each session begins at 5:30pm with the program beginning at 6 p.m.

Here's the schedule of forums across the state:

2/18: Baton Rouge - McKinley Alumni Center, 1520 Thomas H. Delpit Drive
2/19: Pineville - Kees Park Community Center, 2450 Hwy 28 E
2/20: Shreveport - Caddo School Board Office, 1961 Midway Street
2/21: Lafayette - Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy, 805 Teurlings Drive
2/25: West Monroe - West Monroe Convention Center, 901 Ridge Avenue
2/26: Lake Charles - Lake Charles Boston Academy, 1509 Enterprise Blvd.
2/27: Chalmette - Chalmette Elementary School - 75 E. Chalmette Circle

WHY: It's extremely important for parents, teachers, school administrators, community members, and legislative members to fully understand the impact changes will have on Louisiana public schools. Each and every one of these stakeholders must make a commitment to work together in order to maximize our children's success.
