"If we as a district are to realize our vision of providing every child in Jefferson Parish with an excellent education, we must focus our efforts on dramatically improving our low performing schools and providing our students with rigorous coursework that will help them succeed in the global economy," said Superintendent Dr. James Meza, Jr. "Mass Insight has been nationally recognized for both its work on school turnarounds and its Massachusetts Math & Science Initiative.

Superintendent James Meza said Jefferson could be eligible for reimbursement through the federal government's E-Rate program for the technology improvements. Choosing to participate in the program would mean two things: The school system would have as much as $15 million to spend for other purposes, but because participation would mean possibly delaying upgrades until October, Jefferson might not be fully ready to administer the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers standardized test on computers by May 2015.

The School Board is scheduled to consider the issue in committee meetings Tuesday at 4 p.m., and Meza said he thinks it's worth the wait, even if some students take the exam on paper instead of online. "We can be PARCC-ready without having to transform our technology infrastructure," he said.

Superintendent James Meza said he expects the board to approve the work when it meets Wednesday because every member but one was at last week's committee meeting and no one voiced any objections to how the funds are to be allocated.

"Our schools were deteriorating very rapidly and we were very concerned about that," he said. "We certainly didn't want (the buildings) to be a risk for students."
Every high school but one is getting some level of attention. Meza said the projects were chosen according to the severity of the problem and which work would prevent future costs from escalating, among other criteria.
