NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The state agency that oversees most public schools in New Orleans has joined with the Urban League of Greater New Orleans for one last promotion of the new single-application process for New Orleans schools.
The "one-app" process allows parents to fill out a single application where they can list their top choices of schools for their children to attend. It's promoted by the state Recovery School District as a simpler process than has been in place in past years - and a means of ensuring that as many students as possible get enrolled in the school they want most.
Saturday's event takes place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in New Orleans' City Park and will include music, refreshments and activities for kids.
