FARMERVILLE, La. (AP) A state judge in Baton Rouge has ruled that the board of Elementary and Secondary Education can take money from local school boards to pay for charter schools in the district.
Union Parish Superintendent Steve Dozier says he'd like a more detailed explanation of Monday's ruling by District Judge Todd Hernandez.
The judge's ruling rejected a request for a preliminary order to stop local money from going to D'Arbonne Woods Charter School.
Hernandez ruled that it is properly funded, and that the parish school system failed to prove that it has been hurt by using money for the school.
Dozier says the school system will lose $1.2 million.
He said in February that the system would not appeal. Now Dozier says the school board would decide.
