Board Seeks Public Input on Sugar Mill Primary Attendance Zone Options
The School Board's Strategic Planning Committee selected four draft options for the Sugar Mill Primary attendance zone and would like to gather input from the public before making a final decision. Please visit to explore the proposed new attendance boundaries and complete an online survey to rank them in order of preference.

In addition to the online survey, there will be two meetings for members of the public to view the boundary options and ask questions of staff: 6 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 14th and 6 p.m., Oct. 15th, both at Central Middle School's cafetorium. 

The new Sugar Mill Primary School is scheduled to open in Fall 2021. Designed to relieve growing student enrollment at Central Primary and Duplessis Primary, the intent is that no other primary schools will be impacted.

New School Leaders Introduced to the Board
The School Board officially announces the appointment of the following school leaders: Lowery Middle Principal Michael Hilton, Lowery Middle Assistant Principal Kassielyn Smith, and Donaldsonville High Assistant Principal Julien Surla. These leaders have been in their positions since the start of the school year. More information about each leader will be issued in a press release, and additional new hires will be introduced at future board meetings.
