LOUISIANA FIRST IN NATION TO PROVIDE FAMILIES EARLY CHILDHOOD THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMANCE INFORMATION SYSTEM
BATON ROUGE, La. – The Louisiana Department of Education released a comprehensive online reporting system detailing how well child care centers and schools statewide are preparing students, birth through grade 12, for the next grade level and beyond. The interactive system, called the Louisiana School Finder, details the first-ever early childhood performance profiles and the annual school performance scores, among other information valuable to families. It is the first of its kind in the nation.
“It is a great step forward for our state to report on the good work going on in early childhood centers alongside their counterparts in K-12 systems,” said State Superintendent John White. “This effort supports the most fundamental purpose of the state’s rating system: to use the power of information to focus all involved on student learning. We encourage families, educators, business and community leaders, and partners to continue to engage in this new system and to inform its evolution. Our collective dialogue about education is grounded in a shared understanding of both successes of the past and challenges ahead.”
Louisiana School Finder
The early childhood performance profiles and the K-12 school performance scores are reported this year through the new Louisiana School Finder, an interactive, comprehensive online reporting system. The Louisiana School Finder, unveiled today after more than a year of public discussion and planning, provides families with:
school performance scores and early childhood performance ratings to show how well schools and centers are preparing students for the next grade-level;
basic information about schools and centers such as their address, website, hours of operation, and principal or director’s name; and
listings of course offerings, clubs, enrichment and extracurricular activities.
“The Louisiana School Finder will be a valuable tool available to parents, community members and those looking to locate information and data on success indicators on all schools,” said Sonny Savoie, President of the Louisiana PTA. “This information will enable parents to make informed choices relative to the schools that will provide their children with the greatest opportunity for a successful education.”

Desiree Charbonnet – REALTOR® Party Champion and NOMAR’s Choice for Mayor of New Orleans
The New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS® is proud to endorse Desiree Charbonnet for Mayor of New Orleans. Here are a few reasons why Desiree Charbonnet is the best candidate to move housing forward:
Desiree opposes the Rental Registry & Inspection Program ordinance. She believes that everyone should have access to quality affordable housing, but recognizes this can be done through other means, including an improved Code Enforcement process and enforcement of existing housing and code laws.
Desiree has a plan to create dedicated funding for the creation of new affordable housing units – a plan that is fiscally sound, smart, and recognizes that housing costs and economic development go hand-in-hand. She also knows that the best policies to move New Orleans forward cannot simply be copied from San Francisco or New York – they have to be right for the needs of our people and our unique community.
Desiree recognizes that it is not enough to simply increase affordable housing units; New Orleanians who purchase affordable units must also be able to build equity in their homes in order to move out of poverty and into the middle class.
Desiree understands that REALTORS® are experts in housing and the community, and she wants to partner with NOMAR to identify areas where we can collaborate with City Hall to help improve our community, including reducing blight, fixing title issues, and encouraging major businesses to offer incentives to their employees to become homeowners in New Orleans.
