ST. FRANCISVILLE - West Feliciana Parish Superintendent Hollis G. Milton told the school board that all the schools in the district will change from a six-week grading period to a nine-week grading system.
Milton said this was in keeping with the state's more rigorous Common Core Standards in reading and writing, math, science, social studies, foreign language, physical education and math.
The Advocate reports the superintendent told the board Tuesday the district is working to offer an online payment option for school dues and cafeteria payments.
He said the school district will soon have a cellphone application to link the public with the school system's website.
Milton said the new link is designed for better communication with parents and the parish community.
