· To create awareness of psycho-social needs that adversely affects the learning processes of students.
· To advocate for those we serve and empower them to advocate for themselves.

Curriculum and Instruction
Mrs. Renita Page, Director, Secondary Curriculum
Mrs. Anne Smith, Director of Elementary Curriculum
Vernon Parish is committed to providing a curriculum that is rigorous, relevant, and addresses 21st Century Skills. Our goal is to ensure learning through effective instruction in each classroom. The Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum, which is based on benchmarks and standards for learning, is used in every grade level in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Educators participate in continuous professional development around research-based best instructional practices.
Our motto, "Every Child, Every Day, Whatever it Takes," keeps the student at the center of the educational process. This journey begins with our early childhood programs, Head-Start and LA-4, where developmentally appropriate learning activities for children take place in an environment designed to address their social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative growth.
As students move into the elementary grades, literacy and numeracy are the emphasis of instruction across the curriculum. Students learn how to "think" and apply skills in all content areas in middle and high school. Additional opportunities are offered through gifted, honors, advanced placement, dual enrollment, distant learning, and vocational studies.
In addition to the core curriculum, Vernon Parish schools offer a variety of electives, enrichments, and extracurricular activities. Needs of exceptional children are served according to federal, state, and local requirements. These innovative programs help to prepare our graduates to continue their education and/or enter the workforce.

A variety of nutritional services are provided by the Vernon Parish School Board Student Nutrition Program, also known as School Food Service. On a daily basis, breakfast and lunch are available in all schools to students, faculty, and school visitors. Meals are nutritionally adequate, attractively served, moderately priced, and serve as as extension of nutrition education into the homes of children.
Meals served to students are planned according to provisions of the National School Lunch Act. Lunch meals provide approximately one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances for students of each age group. Breakfast provides one-fifth of their daily nutritional needs.
Meal service to students with special dietary needs due to disabilities or medical conditions is available at the school cafeterias. By submitting a Diet Modification Form, a physician's diet order and a parent approval letter, the cafeteria manager can make modifications.
Because the National School Lunch Program is federally subsidized, students may be eligible for free or reduced priced meals. Parents may apply for Meal Benefits by completing the Multi-Child Application For Meal Benefit Form provided by the schools to every student at the beginning of every school year; however, application forms are available for processing throughout the school year.

|Pupil Appraisal Services are an integral part of the total instructional program of the Vernon Parish school system. The purpose of Pupil Appraisal Services is to assist students who have learning problems, adjustment problems, or other special needs by providing services to students, parents, teachers, and other school personnel. Some examples are provided below.
1. Assistance to teachers in the development and implementation of behavioral and/or instructional interventions (Response to Interventions/RTI).
2. Evaluation of students to determine whether they are exceptional and in need of special educational services.
3. Consultation with parents, students, teachers, and other personnel on topics such as instructional or behavioral modifications, exceptional students, and student development.
4. Staff development with school personnel and parents.
5. Interpretation of evaluation findings to school personnel and parents.
6. Direct support services to students with learning or behavioral problems.
Pupil Appraisal personnel are not limited to providing services solely to students referred for an individual evaluation. Many students experiencing learning problems can be helped through recommendations made by pupil appraisal personnel for use in the regular classroom, enabling the student to benefit from instruction in the general education curriculum and eliminating the need for a referral for an individual evaluation. Major functions of pupil appraisal personnel are to be child/student advocates and to assist students to remain in and profit from the regular educational program, whenever possible. When a student, as a result of an individual evaluation, qualifies for special educational services, pupil appraisal personnel will recommend services needed to assist the teachers and parents of the student in providing an appropriate special educational program.
