The Lafayette Parish School System announced that 25 Louisiana educators have earned the distinction of being named to the Renaissance National Honor Roll for significant reading achievement of their students through the Accelerated Reader Program, and all 25 represent LPSS. AR, as it is commonly referred to among students and faculty, engages K-12 students in independent reading practice and tests students' reading comprehension.

Of the 25 educators across the state achieving outstanding performance in advancing students' achievement in reading, 24 educators are from Ernest Gallet Elementary School and one from Martial Billeaud Elementary School.

Congratulations to students earning AR points for their reading efforts and the LPSS educators who received National Honor Roll status for leading their students to meet or exceed data targets in reading that research shows leads to significant student growth.
