LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board has deferred a decision on charter school applications from two separate nonprofit groups for more time to review its options.

The Advocate reports Superintendent Pat Cooper said on Wednesday the board must act within 90 days of application's submission, which sets the deadline for Oct. 26.

Inspire Charter Academy Inc. proposed two K-8 schools. Only one of the K-8 schools, set to open in August 2014, was considered by the board due to a district staff oversight in preparing the agenda. The other school could be considered at a later date.

The second application, from Lafayette Charter Foundation Inc. proposed a total of three schools: the first, a K-8 school to open next August; a second K-8 to open in 2015 and a high school for 2017.
