Kira has emphasized academic improvement for all children. Major improvements include an increase in students graduating, earning college credits through AP courses, and ACT scores, as well as decreases in student drop out rates, suspensions, and expulsions.
Providing Resources for Teachers and Schools
Kira’s efforts helped get a pay raise for teachers and more funding for schools. She also expanded access to quality child care and pre-K classes and increased funding for Elementary and Secondary Education.
Setting High Louisiana Standards
Moving our educational system forward means making changes and investments. That’s why Kira helped establish a process for local educator and community input to set High Louisiana Based Academic Standards.
