The organization, 'Louisiana AA+ Schools," which is committed to preserving the arts in education, recognized Lake Charles Charter Academy for demonstrating the importance of the arts to its students.
Jacques Rodrigue, Executive Director for the Louisiana AA+ Network, says the arts are critical to a student's education.
Jacques Rodrigue, son of the late George Rodrigue, read one of his father's children's books and led students in a 'Blue Dog' themed art activity.
LAA+ is the first whole school arts-integrated reform initiative of its kind to enter Louisiana. The LAA+ network provides teachers with the essentials to think more creatively about how students can apply learning to the real world, and how they can present curricula to students in ways they learn best.
