Group Told Trust Is The Key To Winning Any Lafayette School Tax

There is 45-member community education plan committee that is working on how Lafayette can afford to pay for the man needed education and facility improvements in Lafayette.  One member of that group said at a session this week that the key to solving the funding problem is getting Lafayette’s trust to they will approve a tax proposition for schools.

About half of the committee members were at Monday’s meeting to discuss a funding source for the Lafayette Parish School Board.  The money would be used to implement the education turnaround plan and to do with a laundry list of improvements to facilities.

Superintendent Pat Cooper has suggested that a 16-mill property tax that lapsed several years ago could be looked at again.  If voter’s were to approve the measure it could bring $32 million dollars to the plan.

Committee member Nathan Norris said the type of tax plan put before voters won’t matter if the public doesn’t trust the board.
