The 2020-2021 school year has begun and it has been a challenge. The COVID-19 pandemic has shed a light on the inequities our students face everyday across our state. The access and opportunity gaps are real and must be addressed by everyone who cares about the future of our children. 

In St. Helena, we made the choice to enter into "A Brave New Space". This is our theme moving forward because it speaks to the possibilities this challenge has created. We have the opportunity to create a new space for children that embrace their differences, support their real needs, and acknowledge their gifts and talents.  

For years, we have worked to improve the academic success of our students by increasing classroom resources, implementing meaningful professional development for our teachers, aligning our curriculum with state assessments, and creating conducive learning environments. Our teachers and staff are working diligently to ensure equitable access to technology and internet services.  

It is through these challenges that our dedication and commitment to the children of this parish will prevail. A new public school system will emerge in 'A Brave New Space" that we all can be proud of and support.
