LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Six Lafayette Parish schools will undergo renovations and improvements within the next couple of years after the school board approved a $30 million bond package.
The largest chunk of money, about $9 million, will go toward the David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy for building and technology additions. Green T. Lindon Elementary will also receive nearly $9 million to build more classrooms as it deals with severe overcrowding.
Youngsville Middle will receive about $5.3 million for its own expansions and additional classrooms. About $2 million will go to Northside High School for projects including chemistry and science labs, window replacements and locker room improvements.
L.J. Alleman Middle School will receive about $3 million and Lafayette High School will receive about $2.5 million.
