Flood Recovery

03/01

Galvez Primary School will return to its home campus on Thursday, Mar. 2, 2017, after more than six months at host sites Lakeside Primary and the old RPCC campus. The move-in date comes after a successful follow-up Fire Marshal inspection today of the temporary buildings on its campus.

The Fire Marshal inspection of Galvez Primary's temporary buildings on Monday revealed one item that required additional attention. That item was addressed and corrected today, and the Fire Marshal is scheduled to return tomorrow at 1 p.m. for a final review.

Before we break for the holiday weekend, I would like to give you a quick update on the status of our flood recovery.

Yesterday, we celebrated the return of St. Amant High School to its campus in both a brand new freshman academy and temporary buildings. This was a major milestone in our district's flood recovery, and I am happy to report that everything ran very smoothly.

After six months of being displaced by the Flood of 2016, St. Amant High School will return to its campus on Monday, Feb. 13, 2017. The move-in date comes on the heels of a successful Fire Marshal inspection completed today.

I am happy to report that Ascension Public Schools will be recommended for international accreditation by AdvancED. An external review team completed a visit this week and affirmed the hard work of our students, our entire Ascension Parish School Board staff and the Ascension Parish community. In fact, the lead evaluator said our work is leading other schools and systems in the world.

Our ambitious target of moving into temporary buildings on Feb. 3, 2017, is officially delayed. As stated in our video message earlier this month, we experienced weather delays over the holidays that impacted the installation of temporary structures. We have been able to recover some of that lost time, but unfortunately, we are still behind schedule.

Due to the complexity of activities taking place at each campus, we created a Flood Recovery Campus Status Report page on our website so that you can track the specific progress of each school. We will continue to update this webpage as work progresses. Additionally, in response to several inquiries, we created a Frequently Asked Questions page so that you can stay fully informed.
