Jabbia Named Interim Superintendent
As a veteran educator who has dedicated 52 years of service to St. Tammany Parish Public Schools, Pete Jabbia was named Interim Superintendent effective July 1, 2020.

"I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as Interim Superintendent for St. Tammany Parish Public Schools as we transition to the 2020-2021 school year," said Jabbia. "I look forward to continuing to work with our school board, administration, and the entire STPPS family as we work together to educate every child, every day for a successful tomorrow."

He took over for Trey Folse who announced his retirement in June 2020 to become Assistant Superintendent of System Relations for the Louisiana Department of Education after 10 years as STPPS Superintendent.

Jabbia has spent his entire professional career in St. Tammany Parish Public Schools, first as a classroom teacher for 10 years at Chahta-Ima High and Chahta-Ima Junior High (now Chahta-Ima Elementary), and Bayou Lacombe Junior High (now Bayou Lacombe Middle). He spent five years in school administration as an assistant principal at Carolyn Park Middle before moving on to principal at Brock Elementary and Slidell Junior High. He then moved to Central Office in 1973 to serve as STPPS Personnel Director for 12 years.

He was named Assistant Superintendent in 2003, a role he held for 10 years before moving up to Associate Superintendent in 2013.

A member of the Louisiana Association of School Personnel Administrators, Louisiana Association of School Executives, and the American Association of School Administrators, Jabbia holds a bachelor's degree from Northwestern State University, an M.Ed. in administration and supervision, and a master's plus 30 (MA+30) from Southeastern Louisiana University.

Jabbia will serve as interim superintendent while the school board conducts a search and selects the next superintendent.
