The Parent Guides for the ELPT and LEAP Connect assessments have been updated to reflect test information for the 2018-2019 school year. Please share these guides with families to help them better understand these assessments and better support their child’s preparation.
Both parent guides are available in the Family Support Toolbox library along with the Parent Guides to the LEAP 2025 tests. Translated versions will be available later this month.
Pursuant to Act 677 and Act 837, Local Educational Agencies are required to make information about the transfer of students' personally identifiable information (PII) available to parents and guardians. Below you will find a list of programs and software vendors that utilize student's PII. WBR is currently gathering the following information from vendors that will be posted online when available.
a profile of each authorized recipient;
a copy of the signed agreement between WBR and the authorized recipient;
a complete listing of all the data elements authorized in the transfer of information;
a statement of the intended use of the information;
the name and contact information of the individual serving as the point of contact for the agreement; and
a process by which parents may register a complaint related to unauthorized transfer of personally identifiable student information
A copy of all signed contracts/data agreements can be viewed at the West Baton Rouge Parish Central Office located at 3761 Rosedale Road in Port Allen, Louisiana from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. (Monday through Friday).
Louisiana Believes starts with the premise that all children can achieve high expectations and that parents know best how to prepare their children to succeed in college and careers. Our goal is to empower you with information so you can decide the best education for your child.
As schools and students begin their final preparations for the spring Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) tests, the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) created this fact sheet to provide parents with general information about the tests, and what you and your child can expect when he or she takes the tests in April and May.
During the first two years of high schools, students should focus on building on the knowledge and skills they gained in previous grades. Every 9th and 10th grade student (beginning 2014-2015 and thereafter) will take core academic classes to work towards a diploma. Following the student’s 10th grade year, a student may choose to work toward a Jump Start TOPS Tech Pathway or pursue the TOPS University Pathway. Students may choose both pathways. Decisions are made with counseling and guidance, based on the student’s interests, capabilities, and ambitions.
K-12 Assessments: If we believe that all students can achieve, then we must measure their progress to ensure they remain on track for the next grade level and, ultimately, for college and professional careers. Student & School System Results: Louisiana developed an accountability system which incentivizes individual student and school-wide achievement and growth, and reports annually on their performance.
Tools to Support Assessments: As Louisiana’s tests move online, teachers, principals, and school system leaders need support in order to ensure that all students have the academic and technological skills needed to be successful.
