The School Building Level Committee (SBLC) is comprised of various school staff members and may include an administrator, counselor, resource helping teacher, referring teacher, and other appropriate personnel. When a student has any specific concern(s), a conference is held between the teacher and the parent. Specific concerns are documented and the classroom teacher will implement appropriate interventions. If the interventions are not successful, a meeting is held with the parent invited. At the SBLC meeting, the committee reviews all information and makes additional recommendations for interventions and/or screenings.
Students are responsible for the care and use of textbooks and/or Chromebooks. In the event a textbook or Chromebook is lost or misplaced, the student will be responsible. Damages other than normal wear from usage will be assessed.
The St. Tammany Parish School Board (STPSB) 1:1 Chromebooks for Learning deployment is to promote high levels of student engagement for all students. Increasing access to technology is essential to build upon college and career readiness skills. STPSB wants all students to be responsible digital citizens, thrive intellectually, personally, physically, and creatively.
The policies, procedures, and information within this document serve as information for students and parents/guardians. Teachers may set additional requirements for Chromebook use in their classroom.

A parent-teacher conference is a chance for adults to talk about how a child is progressing in school. It is an opportunity for you, as a parent, to ask questions about any concerns you may have regarding your child’s progress. Because each child’s progress is important and confidential, please refrain from asking these types of questions in any informal situations (i.e., during volunteer time, Open House, etc.). Please schedule all conferences through the teacher. When arriving for a conference, even if it is after school, please sign in at the office.
Homework is a means of reviewing and reinforcing the lessons taught at school. Homework is also a way to help a student develop independent work habits.
- Ask your child if he/she has homework. Homework is generally assigned every day except Friday or the day before a holiday.
- Ask your child to show you the homework assignment and to explain the completed work to you.
- Set aside a regular time and place for home work.
- Call your child’s teacher when your child repeatedly has difficulty with the assigned homework.
