The goal of the Livingston Parish Public School System is educational excellence. Our instructional programs are focused to meet the needs of our student population and the requirements of the State Board of Elementary and Secondary education.
The elementary program of studies consists primarily of required basic education courses. An emphasis is placed on Language Arts and Mathematics in kindergarten through 5th grades. Social Studies, Science, Physical Education and Fine Arts are also included in the daily schedule. Foreign Language programs are offered at various elementary schools.
Students in the middle school grades receive instruction in the core curriculum, reading, English, math, science and social studies, as well as a variety of electives and/or exploratory courses. The middle schools currently offer a variety of programs and instructional approaches that work to meet each middle school students' individual academic and emotional needs.
Our high schools are changing with the High School Redesign movement. We are focusing on increasing graduation rates, reducing dropout rates, and making the curriculum rigorous and relevant to real life in our rapidly changing world. Livingston Parish high schools have taken many steps toward the goal of reform.
The LPPS Curriculum Department assists in professional development opportunities and the implementation of various programs. Supervisors and curriculum coordinators visit the schools and give assistance and support to the principals and teachers. We are committed to excellence!
