BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana Superintendent of Education John White will launch a back-to-school tour around the state in September.
He'll pick the spots based on the suggestions of education leaders. Principals and teachers are being asked to email or tweet their recommendations for tour stops, with White saying he's looking for innovations to highlight.
The Department of Education announced the plans Wednesday and gave a list of 11 parishes White says he'll visit, starting Sept. 17 in Iberville Parish and wrapping up Nov. 1 in Ouachita Parish.
In statement, White called it important to focus on the creativity and effectiveness of teachers and principals at Louisiana's schools.
