Head Of School Makes Announcement On Jefferson Parish

February 27, 2012 / Posted by in News

Dear ISL Community,

ISL Jefferson Parish will open in August 2012. We are currently negotiating with the Jefferson Parish School System to select the school’s location. While opening a school in Jefferson brings about many challenges, as well as opportunities, for the ISL Board of Trustees, we are excited about what it means for parents and students in metropolitan New Orleans to have access to a new language immersion school.

To ensure that ISL’s academic quality and positive school culture flourish in Jefferson Parish, two experienced ISL leaders have been recruited to open ISLJP. Mr. Novelt Estrella, current Olivier Street Principal and Ms. Adierah Berger, Camp Street’s Middle School Science Teacher, will collaborate in the opening of ISL Jefferson Parish. Mr. Estrella will assume the role of Principal with Ms. Berger as his Assistant Principal. Please join me in congratulating these two outstanding members of the ISL community on their new positions.

Staffing ISLJP with seasoned ISL employees will ensure the new school opens on a strong foundation. However, these appointments will create openings at our Camp Street and Olivier Street Campuses. We are seeking a highly qualified school leader and a certified Middle School Science teacher to join ISL and fill these roles. Until then, Mr. Estrella will continue as Olivier Street’s Principal and Ms. Berger will remain on the Camp Street faculty. The experience and commitment of our academic teams will ensure that these transitions do not adversely affect school operations or student learning.

As we look to the 2012 school year, we will be hiring faculty and staff for ISLJP as well as to fill openings on the Camp Street and Olivier Street campuses. We will recruit and hire teachers (Art, Music, PE, English Language Arts and Enrichment), administrative assistants, family liaisons, assistant teachers, remediation specialists, maintenance, custodial and other operational positions.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 504.934.4795 or by email at headofschool@isl-edu.org.
