Residents and Officials Reject Pilot Program

Posted:

Lafayette public school officials are talking about extending the academic year by hundreds of hours.

Selective schools in five different states are participating in a pilot program to extend the school year by three hundred hours.

State and federal funds would cover operating costs.

Lafayette public schools Superintendant and assistant Superintendant met on Monday to discuss the possibility of also stretching their calendar. But one parent we spoke with says more hours wouldn't work.

"I don't think so I mean the kids are in school long enough as it is. I mean we already have so many extra things we need to do. I mean you have a life to live after school, so no, I don't agree with it at all" says parent Josh Rambin.

Will Lafayette public schools be in session three hundred more hours a year?

News 10's Darren Robert has the answer.
