Lafayette Board To Discuss $386M In School Repairs

Members of the Lafayette Parish School Board will be meeting this weekend in a retreat set for tomorrow.

School board members will be meeting Saturday to talk about more than $386 million in repairs and building that needs to happen at Lafayette Parish Schools.

Members of the board will be discussing the recommendations made by the Community Education Plan Committee.  That volunteer group has met multiple times to discuss the many needs of schools in the parish.  They have said the system needs new tax revenue to pay for many repairs in the district.  Voters, of course, would have to approve any new taxes.

The committee has recommended that the board ask voters to agree to a combination of sales and property taxes to raise funds for construction, repairs and instructional programs for Lafayette Parish schools.
