Lafayette Teachers To Be Polled On Discipline Issues
Several weeks ago on "Mornings With Ken and Bernie" Lafayette Parish School Board member Greg Awbrey joined the show to talk about discipline issues in parish schools. Last night, the Lafayette Parish School Board approved two items that are designed to help them gather information about the district's performance and a discipline survey.
All teachers will be mailed a survey asking them about discipline problems in the classroom this year. Awbrey says he put the survey together based on input from other board members. He hopes to get all the surveys back by the middle of June, and then they likely can discuss the survey results with the whole board in July.
The survey is coming at a time when Awbrey has said many teachers and parents have complaining that discipline problems seemed even worse this year than in recent years.
The board unanimously approved on Wednesday sending out the surveys.
Meanwhile, the board also agreed to conduct an official evaluation of Superintendent Pat Cooper.
