Education department compiles high school guide

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's education department has published a guide for high school student planning, to highlight state policies and programs for counselors, teachers and parents.

Education Superintendent John White said the guidebook, released Tuesday, will help make sure students are on track for a college degree or professional career after graduation.

The 28-page booklet includes information about planning for struggling students, the state's accountability system, counseling programs for students and ways to receive skills training and advanced college credit.

The education department is holding a series of webinars each Thursday this month for superintendents, principals, teachers and counselors about the information contained in the guide. Print copies of the booklet will be distributed in districts as well.

The guidebook is available online at:
