ABBEVILLE, La. - The Vermilion Parish School Board hired demographer Mike Hefner at Thursday's board meeting.
Hefner will conduct a projection study of attendance lines of all school zones in the parish.
The northern part of the parish is crowded, according to Brad Prudhomme, interim superintendent for Vermilion Parish Schools.
Any rezoning plan would have to be approved by the board and would not take effect until next school year.
The findings of the study will be presented to the board at a later date.
