Lafourche Parish Public Schools is a school district headquartered in Thibodaux, Louisiana.

Contents

The district serves all of Lafourche Parish, including a portion of Des Allemands.

Jerome "Dee" Richard, current member of the Louisiana House of Representatives from Lafourche Parish, one of only two Independents in the chamber, served two stints on the Lafourche Parish School Board, from 1982 to 1984 and again from 1986 to 1994.

Residents of select portions of Lafourche Parish (particularly in parts of Grand Bois and Bourg) may attend schools in the Terrebonne Parish School District. Students with certain medical problems and children of certain teachers residing in Terrebonne Parish may attend school in the Lafourche Parish Public Schools only if superintendents of both systems approve it on a case-by-case basis.
