Iberville School Board Reduces To 13 Members
PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) — The Iberville Parish School Board has approved a motion to reduce itself down to a 13-member body following a debate over district lines and proposed reduction models.
However, which board members will be walking away from the now 15-member board won't be known until the School Board approves a new redistricting plan — currently being drafted by Glenn Koepp of Redistricting LLC.
The Advocate reports the board approved the plan Monday night in an 11-2 vote.
The motion to reduce the board's size was introduced by Michael Hebert who said the School Board's new district lines wouldn't mirror those of the 13-member Parish Council.
Brian Willis said he favors a 13-member School Board, but he didn't like the Parish Council's representation map because it was too "spread out."
