About Ombudsman Program

Caddo Parish Public Schools are now partnered with Ombudsman for alternative education. Ombudsman is a private company which specializes in education programs. The company will still be responsible to the CPSB and will make regular reports to the CPSB. Caddo staff will monitor to ensure that all federal and state guidelines are being met. Caddo Parish Public Schools made this change because an opportunity was identified to improve the alternative education programs while recognizing cost savings at the same time. It was a "Win, Win scenario".
