This full individual permit processing will consist of review by the staff of CMD of each authorization request. Therefore, pursuant to the Rules and Procedures for Coastal Use Permits, Title 43, Subpart 723.C.3.a, of the Louisiana Code of Administrative Procedure, an application fee will be assessed for activities proposed for authorization under the authority of this General Permit. If appropriate, permit processing fees and appropriate mitigation plan processing fees also will be assessed.
B. A standard Joint Application Form shall be completed and submitted to CMD along with drawings depicting the location and character of work proposed for approval under the authority of this General Permit. The applicant shall submit a complete application packet (forms and plats) to CMD. The application shall be accompanied by the application fee in effect at the time of application submittal. This General Permit shall not apply if the proposed work is determined not to meet the criteria. The applicant shall be advised within five (5) calendar days of receipt of the complete application that the application shall be processed as an individual CUP if the determination is made that the proposed activity is not consistent with this General Permit.
C. Individual written approvals from CMD must be obtained prior to the commencement of any individual activity proposed under the authority of this General Permit.
D. Should CMD deem that they may have an interest in the project, prior to issuance of authorization for an individual activity under the authority of this General Permit, the following agencies shall have a five (5) calendar day period to review the proposed activity: the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF); Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH); Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ); Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA); Department of Culture Recreation, and Tourism (CRT); Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD); State Land Office (SLO); and the approved Local (Parish) Coastal Zone Management Program (LCP), if applicable.

PROCLAMATION
National Family Caregivers Month - November 2017
WHEREAS, over 90 million Americans today are family caregivers for their loved ones; and
WHEREAS, a large number of them are finding themselves providing care 24-hours a day/7-days a week; and
WHEREAS, although caregiving can be a rewarding experience, it is not without its consequences such as stress, poor health, and caregiver burnout; and
WHEREAS, six out of 10 family caregivers juggle everyday life tasks such as preparing the children for school, managing household responsibilities, and work full- or part-time. In addition, they have the added responsibility of managing medications for their loved one. Whether it be for a senior with Alzheimer’s or a child with special needs the required attention can be non-stop; and
WHEREAS, caregiving affects the whole family, family time and mealtime are extremely important in the caregiving setting. Ensuring that the caregiver and family members get the proper nutrition is important for maintaining strength, energy, stamina, and a positive attitude; and
WHEREAS, making time for yourself and the family protects a family caregiver’s own health, strengthens family relationships, prevents burnout, and can enable a care recipient to stay at home up to three times longer. The change to take a breather and re-energize is vital in order for you to be as good a caregiver tomorrow as you were today; and
WHEREAS, with the responsibility of family caregivers in our country is growing every year, it is even more essential to encourage these heroes to take some time for respite, so they may continue their mission of providing that loving care that only they can provide.
NOW THEREFORE, be it resolved that the Cameron Parish Police Jury of the parish of Cameron, does hereby recognize November 2017 as National Family Caregivers Month with the theme “Caregiving Around the Clock”.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand officially and caused to be affixed the seal of the Cameron Parish Police Jury, Cameron Parish, Louisiana on this the 3rd day of November 2017.

Cameron Parish School Board
Cameron Parish 3-year-old and
Pre-Kindergarten Sites
Receive Top Rating in the State

The Cameron Parish Community Network has ranked #1 in the state of Louisiana with having the highest CLASS observation scores.

Class observations occur three times per year for all 3 and 4-year-old classrooms in the Cameron Parish School System as well as in Head Start. These observations are done by local and state observers. The CLASS tool focuses on the quality of teacher-child interactions and the instructional depth of the learning.

We are very proud to acknowledge that our network sites averaged a score of 5.83 out of 7 as compared to the state’s overall average of 4.98 in CLASS observations. This means Cameron Parish 3 and 4-year-olds are supported emotionally in well-organized and functioning classrooms and are provided with in-depth, high-quality instruction.

We are fortunate to have two sites within our network which received additional recognition from the Louisiana Department of Education.

Grand Lake High School has been recognized on the 2017 EXCELLENCE HONOR ROLL. Only 40 sites out of 1,600 were recognized with this honor. These sites received CLASS scores ranging from 6-7 (the highest overall rating on the Performance Profile).

Hackberry High School has been recognized on the 2017 TOP GAINS HONOR ROLL. The sites that received this recognition grew one or more points from CLASS scores in 2015-2016 to 2016-2017.

We would like to thank all administrators, teachers, parents, and students for the dedication and hard-work that was put into making our
Cameron Parish Community Network #1 in the state!!!
