Report includes feedback received from dozens of stakeholder listening sessions, state education data and immediate goals as Department develops long-term priorities

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Louisiana State Superintendent of Education Dr. Cade Brumley has completed his first 100 days supporting the state's 800,000 students. Dr. Brumley released a report today that outlines critical work during his first 100 days, feedback received from dozens of stakeholder listening sessions, state education data and immediate goals as the Department develops long-term priorities. 

"I've stepped into this role during a global health pandemic, one of the strongest hurricanes on record for our nation, an extraordinary legislative special session, a time of social unrest, an uncertain economy and various other challenges," said Dr. Brumley. "Together, as a state, we've balanced safety with the need to open our economy, open our schools, open critical conversations and open our minds to new ways of collaborating on our future."

Dr. Brumley's 100 Day Report includes:

  • Summary of LDOE efforts to ensure a strong start to the school year
  • Common themes from over 60 listening sessions with LDOE stakeholders about education in Louisiana
  • Outline of LDOE offices and professionals leading the work to improve educational outcomes for Louisiana's children
  • Data on Louisiana students, teachers, schools and systems
  • LDOE employee feedback and data

The report captures key actions and data points based on the seven priorities outlined in Dr. Brumley's 100 day entry plan, 100 Days for a Strong Start. Those priorities are: ensure a Strong Start to the 2020-2021 school year; advocate during the legislative special session; cultivate a strong and diverse team; provide clear, strong and regular communication; listen to stakeholders; review data and recommendations; and develop a deeper knowledge of the Department.

"I hear the first 100 days set the tone for the years to follow," said Dr. Brumley. "I'm hopeful that tone is one of equity, support, high expectations and a steady resolve to push through adversity."

The Department has posted 100 day plan weekly updates to its website every Friday, including a 50 day report to track progress at the halfway point.
