Congratulations to Boley Elementary School in being recognized as a Louisiana Comeback Campus! The award recognizes the impact educators have made with students despite facing extraordinary obstacles over the past two years. Forty-one schools in Louisiana were named Comeback Campuses after having made significant gains in both math and English language arts since the pandemic and the impact of two historically active hurricane seasons. “We are very proud of Mrs. Bates, her team, and our students,” said Superintendent Coker. “A Title I school facing everyday challenges on top of those brought about through catastrophe, these educators put the students first and made sure everyone has equal opportunity to learn and grow. That’s what Ouachita Parish is all about, a community focused on the future through the success of our students.”
State Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley visited Boley to present the Comeback Campus banner to Principal Bates. For more information on the recognition, see the press release at LDOE Newsroom.
