Press Release Mar. 5 2021

Feedback is needed to identify top community priorities related to the transition report

As a part of EBRPSS Superintendent Dr. Sito Narcisse’s entry plan, he authorized Burns

and findings, Dr. Narcisse is now seeking feedback to help identify the community’s top priorities. The
identified priorities will help guide the first stages of the strategic planning process. To take the survey,

“The transition report provides many opportunities for us as a district to take great strides together. The
goal was always to use what we learned through that process to set the wheels in motion and address the
things we can fix and improve. Our next step is to figure out what our priorities are and where we as a
community would like to focus our efforts and resources. Ultimately this is about figuring out the process
together, what we can do to better serve all of the students and families of East Baton Rouge Parish,” said
Dr. Narcisse, EBRPSS Superintendent of Schools.

Dr. Narcisse and Van Fleet and Burns consultants will hold two community virtual forums on Wednesday,
March 10, to provide additional information about the transition report, outline next steps and engage with
the community.

To attend the virtual forums, please visit the following links during the live sessions:

Wednesday, March 10 – 6 PM: https://meeting.ebrschools.org/2021/03/10/2/

The report findings were compiled by consulting team Burns and Van Fleet. The consultants interviewed
hundreds of teachers, principals, and school staff. Additionally, the team led multiple focus groups and a
dozen facility visits. The comprehensive transition report details 50 recommendations for improving the
East Baton Rouge Parish School System.

“What we found is a system that has a lot of opportunity to improve, but one that has room to grow on a
strong foundation. We know that some of the details in this report may be hard to hear, but we are
providing both the report and recommendations in the hopes of better supporting teachers, schools and
the system to serve students and families. It’s our hope that this report will serve as a catalyst for positive
change and allow all stakeholders involved to put aside differences and work together to urgently improve
in the nine priority areas addressed,” said Stuart Berger of Burns / Van Fleet consulting.
