A JPPSS stakeholder is anyone who is impacted by the success of our district: students, teachers, staff, parents, extended family, business & community leaders, etc… If you live, work, or have a vested interest in the success of Jefferson Parish, we want your help.

The JPSB is holding a special meeting on Monday, March 5 for the superintendent candidates to answer questions from the board and from all JPPSS stakeholders.

Prevent Theft of Lawn and Porch Decorations

Recently, there have been items stolen from our neighbors’ front porches and lawns including: benches, statues and other lawn ornaments. Thieves then resell these items quickly, and a few items have ended in area shops. JPSO advises that items must be identifiable to facilitate their return. Take this opportunity to photograph, and mark these items in a discreet place with a Sharpie or other identifying mark. Please report any theft of property even if it is minor by calling 911 as this is how JPSO receives non-emergency calls. This will assist Officers to identify patterns of crime, and target patrols. This effort will help us discourage theft, and reduce crime in our neighborhood.
