Lusher Charter School has been led by Kathy Riedlinger for close to 3 decades. Under Ms. Riedlinger’s careful watch, Lusher has grown from an elementary school on one campus to a thriving K-12 school located on 3 campuses in uptown New Orleans. Lusher currently serves over 1700 students and continues to grow. Ms. Riedlinger has made it a priority to balance the Lusher leadership team with experienced leaders from outside of the school walls and developing new leaders within the school walls. Lusher Leadership extends well beyond the C.E.O. and principals. Curriculum Coordinators, Deans of Students, Social Workers, and teacher leaders make up integral site-based leadership teams.
