Today was the first day of school for students and teachers in Jeff Davis Parish.
Superintendent Kirk Credeur says the teachers and faculty of each school have spent the summer reflecting on their techniques and how they can improve student achievement for this school year.
"What is our purpose? What did we get into this education business in the first place for? And we want to impact lives. We want to have students achieve. We want students to realize things they never realized before," says Credeur.
