LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Officials say the organization hired by the Lafayette Parish School System to provide educational and behavioral intervention services to its most troubled students will start Feb. 1.
The nonprofit organization, AMIKids, is accepting applications for teaching positions for the new program that will be housed at N.P. Moss Preparatory campus.
The School Board approved a contract for the company's services at its meeting last week. The $184,000 contract is for educational and behavioral intervention services for about 30 students through the end of the school year. Superintendent Pat Cooper told board members last week that the Lafayette Consolidated Government and Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office committed to sharing the cost.
The cost for the services annually is $368,000.
