Major renovations to one Lafayette Parish School. Today at N.P. Moss Preparatory students start in the newly renovated part of their building, after six months of construction on phase one.
N.P. Moss Prep home of the district's alternative program has been renovated to the tune of more than 4 million dollars. Lafayette Parish Superintendent Pat Cooper says students were forced to double up in classrooms but now they have a learning environment to help them excel.
Most of the renovations are inside: new paint, tile floors, new lockers and new restroom fixtures.
The gravel parking lot? now paved and landscaped. Also the upgrades will offer smaller student-teacher ratios and help students in the district graduate from the program.
Principal Jody Duhon says she wants to make sure the facility is full of hope and inspiration.
"Our goal here is the provide a school that allows students to excel, academically, socially and emotionally," said Duhon.
All renovations at N.P. Moss Prep are expected to be complete December 15th.
