Today, Bishop Douglas Deshotel of the Diocese of Lafayette joined Lafayette Parish officials and representatives of more than a dozen community and business organizations in support of the April 29 sales tax election.

With a backdrop of temporary buildings, Lafayette High School is 280% over its original design capacity. Bishop Deshotel expressed his support for this initiative to strengthen schools in Lafayette Parish. 

"Any great and noble society is defined by how it cares for the children in that community," he stated.
       
The next LPSS public tax meeting will be held on April 24th at Alice Boucher Elementary school.
