How can parents obtain a work permit for minors since schools and school board office are closed?

How will students make up missed time?
As per the Governor’s proclamation on March 13, 2020, the required amount of instructional minutes have been suspended. The district will continue to work with the LDOE to determine if any make-up time will be needed. Currently, we do not anticipate any extension of the school year.
Will LEAP testing be rescheduled?
On March 20, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education approved Louisiana's waiver request of assessment, accountability, and reporting requirements under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act. This means Louisiana will not require standardized testing for the 2019-2020 school year.
What resources are available if students do not have internet at home and/or need assistance with accessing the Internet?
