The Lafayette Parish School Board will be discussing how to spend bond money at this Wednesday night's meeting.  Members will be charged with deciding which projects should get money and which ones will have to wait.

Recommendations on how the 30 million dollars in bond money should be spent have included trying to deal with overcrowding at two schools in Youngsville, some major building of facilities where there is other overcrowding, and making major renovations for various schools.

Some previous suggestions that have been made for improvements include:

  • Adding some classrooms at Younsgville Middle School
  • Adding some classrooms at Green T. Lindon Elementary
  • A new cafeteria and renovations for L. J. Alleman Middle School
  • New additions and renovations at David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy
  • Major renovations at Lafayette High School
  • Major renovations at Northside High School

The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. at the Lafayette Parish School Board Offices on Chaplin Drive.
