About Us

The mission of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) is to provide leadership and create policies for education that expand opportunities for children, empower families and communities, and advance Louisiana in an increasingly competitive global market. The Board provides supervision and control over public elementary and secondary schools, special schools, and failed schools under its jurisdiction and has budgetary responsibility for all funds appropriated or allocated by the state for those purposes.
