The education of our children and young adults is the most important business of Orleans
Parish. The future of our community, state, and nation is dependent on how well we perform
this important function. Our school facilities play a significant role in this critical work. The
Louisiana Department of Education, the Recovery School District and the Orleans Parish
Schools are in the process of developing a School Facilities Master Plan for Orleans Parish.

All community members and supporters of high quality education are invited to attend a
Citywide School Planning Meeting to begin the community wide conversation to develop the
facilities master plan.

The Citywide School Facility Planning Meeting will be held on Saturday, November 17th at
the Auditorium of Warren Easton High School from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. located at 3019
Canal Street. Lunch, childcare and interpretation services will be provided.

Please phone 1-877-343-4773 to let us know if you will need childcare or
interpretation services.

Students, parents, teachers, staff, administration, community members, civic leaders, local
leaders, business leaders are invited to the meeting as stakeholders invested in the implementation
of our facilities plan of action.

The focus of the Citywide Meeting will be to examine national and international facility trends
and discuss the current and future educational needs of Orleans Parish that will facilitate the
implementation of the facilities master plan being developed. The Citywide Meeting will address
the following topics:

• Maximizing public engagement and community input
• Possible Community Use
• School Size
• Class Size
• School site development issues
• Grade Configuration
• Flexible school concepts
• Alternative use for schools
• Impact of population return
• 21st Century Schools

An effective process requires involvement by all facets of the school community, and we
encourage you to be involved as an active participant in this Master Plan Process.

We are asking for a firm commitment of your attendance to ensure the effectiveness of this
Conference. For additional information and lets us know of any special needs you
