Talks on Redistricting Plan Postponed

The Caddo Parish School Board has tabled a proposal to adjust attendence zones that would sending some eighth graders to Booker T. Washington High School, instead of Byrd High School.

The plan proposed by board member Willie Burton has been met with some support, but more opposition.

Parents, residents, and even teachers say the quality of education at B.T.W doesn't match up to the magnet program at Byrd High.

If approved, the plan would make J.S. Clarke middle a feeder school for Booker T.

A public meeting will be scheduled for next week to give residents a detailed look at the proposal.

We'll let you know when it happens.
