OBSOLESCENCE DETERMINATION

As population matures or shifts within the St. Tammany Parish Public School System, certain school buildings and campuses may no longer be needed and should be recycled for the benefit of the public which originally acquired the property. In determining which facility is to be retired for school purposes, the Board will be guided by this combination of factors:

  1. Educational flexibility. Which school building is least adaptable for housing a modern and flexible educational program?
  2. Neighborhood. Which school building is most isolated in terms of proximity to the residences of students?
  3. Cost. Which school building represents the highest cost in terms of upkeep and maintenance?

The Board will seek both professional advice and the advice of the community in making its final determination as to the retirement of any school facility
