The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board will consider budget revisions at a regular meeting on Thursday. Executive Director for School Leadership Stacey Dupre has submitted a request for over $100,000 to be included in the Adult Education Parish Prison Budget. This budget change, if approved, will be effective through December 2016. Another budget revision is for the College and Career Readiness Support grant. This grant will provide over $200,000 towards college and career services to high school students.
The Board will also decide whether it will grant Staff the authority to advertise, accept bids and award a contract for the relocation and set up of 4 buildings at Broadmoor Elementary and the demolition of 2 buildings, as well as the demolition of one building at Shenandoah Elementary.
There will also be recognition of schools selected as Magnet Schools of Distinction by the Magnet Schools of America. Magnet Schools of America has also chosen principal and teacher of the year, who will be presented during the meeting.
