State Education Superintendent Cade Brumley unveiled his plan to keep Louisiana schools moving in a positive direction. The initiative, called “Believe to Achieve”, sets goals to keep students on track at every grade level. Brumley said the system must push to accomplish the goals even as the COVID-19 pandemic has added a new level to already existing challenges, including a 2 percent decline in enrollment. Brumley said families are keeping their kids home, and they are seeing that more than anywhere else in the pre-K and kindergarten level.
Brumley said recently that the CDC issued guidance saying schools are not super spreader locations. The superintendent said local medical experts believe schools are some of the safest places kids can be right now.
