New online site will let Louisiana parents compare schools
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's education department has created an online tool aimed at helping families evaluate and compare K-12 public schools and child care centers around the state.
The online site, called the Louisiana School Finder, will launch Tuesday at www.LouisianaSchools.com.
The searchable site will list performance scores and ratings for each school and early childhood center; show course offerings and extracurricular activities available by school; and provide basic information about hours of operation, location and website.
Data about teacher workforce, school discipline and graduation rates will be included in school profiles. For early childhood centers, information will be available about student-to-teacher ratios and curriculum quality.
Parents will be able to compare schools and child care centers and do customizable searches.
