State Board Moves Forward With Takeover Plan
January 14, 2004. A committee of the Louisiana State Board has approved
a process that allows groups ranging from universities to nonprofits
to apply for the job of taking over and running 14 failing schools in
the Orleans parrish education system.
Authority for school takeovers was given to the State Board through
a constitutional amendment passed by voters last fall. Groups whose
plans are approved by the State Board would operate the schools as charters.
The fourteen schools would be removed from the Orleans district and
set in a "recovery school district overseen by the State Board.
