School Choice


Louisiana Public School Choice ACT 853

Our schools are committed to providing a high-quality educational program for all children.  The St. Landry Parish School System is working hard to provide programs to help all students succeed in our school district.  In accordance with Louisiana’s Public School Choice Policy, we are required to inform parents whenever one of our schools is labeled as a D or an F.   As a result, parents have the choice to transfer their child to a higher performing school in the district.  This decision is entirely up to parents and what they think is best for their children. 


Upon registering at a D or F school, parents will be given the School Choice letter and application.  The application must be submitted to the School Choice Supervisor by June 21, 2019, at 4:00 PM.   If the transfer is approved, parents will have to provide transportation for their children to the receiving school. Transportation will not be provided by the district.   


Official notification will be mailed to parents as well as to the sending and receiving schools.  Upon notification from the district, students must register to attend the receiving school by July 23, 2019, and students are to remain at the receiving school for the 2019 – 2020 school year.


If you have further questions about our School Choice Program, please contact Trina A. Preston, Supervisor of Instruction, School Choice, and School Improvement at 337-948-3657 ext. 10709.
