Dear Parents and Caregivers:
On behalf of the St. Tammany Parish Public School System, I would like to welcome you to the new school year. This year our district theme is Focus on the Future. As a school system, we are dedicated to focusing on the future of our students and our St. Tammany community to ensure we continue to provide a high quality education for Every Child, Every Day.
Our school district has a strong history of success. We remain an “A” School District and #1 in large school systems in Louisiana. Our students maintain the highest ACT scores in our state and exceed the national ACT average. Our PTA membership and family support lead the state. We are proud of these accomplishments and are committed to expanding opportunities for students from pre-K through 12th grade to make sure this success continues.
Preparing students to be college or career ready when they graduate requires teamwork within our entire St. Tammany community. When students, parents, school system employees, Parent Teacher Associations, local businesses, community groups, law enforcement and St. Tammany government agencies all work together to focus on the future, the outcome is success.
To help you remain involved in your child’s education, we offer a STPPS mobile app. It provides anytime, anywhere access to important school and district information. The app is free and compatible with Apple and Android devices. You can find it by searching for “St. Tammany Public Schools” in the app store. Once you have downloaded it, be sure to follow your school to receive important updates. You can also find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Periscope, Channel 13 and district and school websites.
We are looking forward to a great school year. Thank you for your support of the St. Tammany Parish Public School System.
W. L. “Trey” Folse, III
