Welcome to Caddo Parish! The Parish of Caddo covers 852 square miles and contains eleven municipalities, each of which adds its own local color to the spectrum of delights that Caddo Parish has to offer. The largest metropolitan area within the Parish is the City of Shreveport, which serves as the Parish seat. Situated on the banks of the Red River, the city serves as the cultural, transportation and business center of the Ark-La-Tex (Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas).
With a staff of more than 5,600, Caddo Parish Public Schools is today the largest employer in the parish. Each day, more than 40,000 youngsters, from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade are taught in our 62 schools.
Our Drive at Caddo Parish Public Schools is to make our region a hub of thoughtful and creative individuals who are inspired and compelled to help their fellow citizen to create a better tomorrow. In our mission toward that goal, our community came together over the past year to develop our guiding plan for continued upward momentum. This strategic plan titled Re-Imagine Caddo: The Plan for Excellence, encompasses not only many facets of Shreveport and Caddo Parish, but seeks to meet the needs of our individual students while bettering the school system as a whole.
