  1. Shouldn’t this be on the school website? Do we need to turn to journalists to know what our own board meeting agenda is?

  2. Oh I can’t wait to see all the torch and pitchfork carriers!!!

  3. Torch and pitchfork? We started when this school opened. Originally, it was an excellent school and then issues began…from the firing of the original CEO (who I might add had excellent experience), expanding possibly too quickly, a board that operates borderline conflict of interest, we’ve seen excellent people fired because of budget shortfalls (though there’s discussion that there’s been spending on the part of the board that was not budget approved, and possibly more conflict of interest spending), we’ve seen an excellent Director reduced to being stressed due to the lack of continued administrative support (who I might add comes from a top notch private French school in San Francisco), and now basically teachers (French and English alike) concerned about their positions, lack of funding, and volunteer parents running the administrative side and security of our school. So, I’m sorry to say, where my child is concerned, and watching a wonderful school going down the wrong road and with a serious lack of employees to run it, I personally see nothing wrong with angered parents. We’ve paid the past 2 years, and even if we are able to continue on without an annual tuition, we should expect nothing less than an excellent school run by competent people, that includes the board and hopefully, employees soon to support the lack of administration.

    If you are genuine in your concern of LFNO and it’s continued success, I would make sure to attend the Board meeting and the Louisiana State Board of Education meeting scheduled to address concerns about LFNO on November 14 at the Sophie B Wright Learning Academy, 1426 Napoleon Avenue at 6:00 pm.

    I don’t work or support any particular faction. I work for my child and am not satisfied with the current board and the way this wonderful school as been reduced to functioning inadequately and inappropriately.
