Important Notice about New CDA New Classes

CDA classes throughout Louisiana are being updated and now require BESE approval for you to qualify for a scholarship.  The April meeting of BESE has been cancelled and thus the beginning of the class has been delayed.  We anticipate the new CDA classes beginning Summer of 2016 and will continue to keep you updated.  In the meantime, we want to work with your staff who need to finish up under the prior CDA program and the extra time can help us accomplish that. Call your Technical Assistant for any questions about any staff who wants to finish this spring. NSU-Child and Family Network
