NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) - Work continues in Iberia Parish this summer to complete $60 million in new construction, renovations and upgrades approved by voters in 2009.
Iberia Parish school Superintendent Dale Henderson tells The Advocate the district recently broke ground for the construction of Loreauville Elementary School, and a new school building that will replace Hopkins Street and Johnston Elementary schools is expected to be completed in December.
The two new elementary schools are part of the $60 million construction and facility improvement package.
Henderson says the majority of the projects are under way, but the $3 million Career Center project is still on the drawing board.
