I signed my paperwork today and I'm officially a 4th grade teacher in the parish next door's public system.

I got full credit for all the years I taught at an unaccredited private school, too. They came in as out of state years, but I got them.

Its a medium sized elementary campus (prek to 5th grade) with 300-375 students. Title 1 and in a rough neighborhood. Around here it would be considered more inner city, but its really more suburban in the grand scheme of things. Its a LouisianaA+ school so they focus on a lot art integration - both visual and performance arts - into all subjects. Low test scores, but great growth scores, and a good principal.

Did they tell you how the school will open this fall? News says cases are rising in Louisiana.
It would really help you to know how to plan.
