Louisiana's K-2 Accountability Plan for Literacy

On Monday, August 29, 2022, L.P. Vaughn Elementary School and its teachers had the honor of speaking with Louisiana State Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley about Louisiana’s first K-2 Accountability Plan.

The Louisiana Department of Education adopted a K-2 Accountability Plan at the end of August to combat the State’s literacy crisis and bring more accountability to educational systems.

Dr. Brumley spoke with teachers at L.P. Vaughn Elementary School about Louisiana’s literacy crisis and what actions teachers can take to ensure students are learning how to read in the early years of education.

L.P. Vaughn teachers discussed their struggles in the classroom and brainstormed ideas on how to transform their school and elevate the role of a teacher.

“Teaching is incredibly difficult work,” says Dr. Brumley. “It is the profession that starts all other professions. We must do a better job of compensating, listening to, and understanding obstacles that get in our way.”

The Natchitoches Parish School Board is proud to have Dr. Brumley spark these conversations with its teachers and staff. Educators are valued professionals, and the State can’t function without them. The Natchitoches Parish School District is going to be a shining star in the next few years.
