DR. KELLI JOSEPH NAMED 2020 SUPERINTENDENT OF THE YEAR
During the LASE/LASS Fall Conference, Dr. Kelli Joseph was named the 2020 Superintendent of the Year. In 2011, Dr. Joseph set out to provide opportunities for students in underperforming schools, restore public support for a struggling school system and address staffing and organizational issues. Through her efforts the district was able to obtain Unitary Status for the school system in 2018 thus ending one of the oldest desegregation cases in Louisiana. She was able to accomplish the building and renovating of facilities using taxes approved by voters and surplus general fund dollars and increase the beginning salary for teachers by 27%. With hard work, a focus on student success and doing what was right for children the district was able to shift the school district in the right direction. Dr. Joseph represented the state of Louisiana during the AASA National Conference in San Diego, CA.
