Jefferson Parish School District

Know your school choice options in the Jefferson Parish Public School System.

In the Jefferson Parish Public School System (JPPSS), students can attend their neighborhood schools or magnet schools that focus on such areas as the performing arts, science and foreign languages; some schools offer "advanced studies" programs with a more rigorous curriculum. The deadline for magnet applications is in late February. The district also provides special education services.

Under the federal No Child Left Behind law, students attending a Title I school designated as "in need of improvement" have the right to attend a higher-performing school in the district.
