Attendance Boundary To Be Considered October 28

School Board action on adopting an attendance district for the new high school on La. Hwy. 1088 was postponed until Tuesday, October 28, after the School Board listened to and considered opinions voiced by parents Thursday night.

The three and a half hour meeting began with a presentation by Donna Addison, chairman of the boundary study committee, which included the reasons behind her group’s recommended attendance map. After her report, School Board Member Don Villere proposed a new map, and the rest of the meeting involved the pros and cons associated with each map.

Debate ended when a motion passed to call a special October 28 meeting, at which time the newly proposed map will be evaluated along with the Committee’s recommended map as well as Map 2 from the September 29 meeting. Several members in the audience asked that Map 2 also be considered by the Board.

Click here to view the three maps being considered by Board members, who will also be looking at public comments from the School System website, written comments provided by parents,  as well as a variety of statistics presented. Over the next few days, School Board staff members will work to update statistical information and demographic data to project the best view of what the new high school will look like in its first year with freshmen and sophomore classes and in its third year when it serves ninth through 12 th grades. This information will be posted on the Web site by the middle of next week.
