Hundreds of public schoolchildren in Baton Rouge learned earlier this month that they are being reassigned to new schools this fall. The change involves more than 100 students at Mayfair Middle to the 300 students at Delmont Elementary schools.
The Advocate reports these changes are part of an effort by Superintendent Bernard Taylor to create what he's calling "families of schools" in parts of Baton Rouge.
In the case of Delmont and Mayfair, Taylor said he is trying to protect those schools, both with F rankings, from state takeover, something that could happen later this year if the schools remain unchanged.
