Iberia Parish students to receive distance learning through end of school year


NEW IBERIA, La. (KLFY) — Iberia Parish School Superintendent Carey Laviolette released a statement today outlining preliminary plans for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. She also assured high school seniors that graduation ceremonies will be held for them in some capacity.

“High schools are in the process of examining senior graduation requirements and reaching out to students who require make-up or recovery work beginning the week of April 20, 2020,” stated Laviolette. “Additional information for seniors will also be posted to the IPSD website.  Promotional guidance for K-11 grade students is forthcoming.”

Primarily, though, Laviolette discussed the acquisition of electronic devices, online hotspots and a virtual curriculum as part of the district’s long-term plans. Laviolette said staff will also face professional development.

By the end of May, students requiring remediation for summer school will be contacted, as well.
