Planning for Success in the 2020-21 School Year
The East Baton Rouge Parish School System is focused on adapting the educational landscape to overcome the unique challenges presented by the pandemic. Innovative changes will be made to create an environment where every child can succeed no matter the circumstance. By prioritizing student safety and quality learning environments, we’re continuing to look forward and make adjustments together for a successful 2020-21 school year.
We look forward to involving you in the process and hearing your feedback on the developing plans for the school year ahead:
- Learn From Experience – At the end of the 2019-20 school year, the district swiftly adapted to the immediate critical needs of students. If COVID-19 persists in preventing a return to the classroom this Fall, we will continue to meet students’ needs to ensure a successful year. Despite foreseeable adjustments such as transportation, social distancing in schools, food services, childcare accommodations, and diverse student needs, we are taking notes from the past several months and moving full steam ahead into our world’s new normal. This means creating new learning opportunities and avenues for access so your child can stay ahead of the game.
- Take Our Survey – We must work together to create and ensure the best learning environment for all of our students. Your feedback is essential in navigating these changing times. Please complete our survey to get involved and share your thoughts regarding upcoming educational opportunities.
- Adapt to New Changes – With your feedback in mind, our top priority is creating new accommodations to minimize unnecessary interactions and ensure quality education across all platforms. Some offerings that could see potential changes include bus schedules and routes, virtual learning, and childcare. We are also working to develop innovative learning opportunities, in-person and online, so EBRPSS can better serve you and our students in the future. Your children’s safety, happiness, and success will always be our mission as we continue to Build the Future of Baton Rouge.
- Enroll Your Child – Despite these uncertain times, it’s important to continue providing a successful and enriching education for children. EBRPSS is integrating programs and enhancing health and safety measures to protect our students while also ensuring every child receives the best education possible.

- Keep Up with Our Progress – EBRPSS is dedicated to creating a comfortable learning environment for our students where every child is capable of succeeding. As we move through this process, parental involvement and feedback will be essential. Our school district will align plans around local, state, and national guidelines and weekly updates.
