Breaux Bridge reconfiguration


In efforts to keep up with the surrounding districts, the St. Martin Parish School Board is considering shifting a few grade levels around in some Breaux Bridge schools.

In the past, reconfigurations have been completed in Cecila, as well as St. Martinville schools. And now, Superintendent Dr. Lottie Beebe believes Breaux Bridge schools, deserve that same attention.

"We have had success with the reconfiguration and we feel that we would need to do something within the Breaux Bridge area", says Dr. Lottie Beebe, St. Martin Parish Superintendent.

The move would consist of moving two grades from Breaux Bridge Elementary to Breaux Bridge Primary, and moving one grade from Breaux Bridge Elementary to Breaux Bridge Jr. High.

Pennye Huval, Principal at Breaux Bridge Primary School said, "Breaux Bridge area schools are moving in the right direction, a positive direction. Our school scores are up at all of the Breaux Bridge schools and I think the reconfiguration or any decision that is made in regards to the reconfiguration would be in the best interest of the students in St. Martin Parish as a whole."

If approved by the board, the Breaux Bridge Elementary location would no longer house students. Leading to a rise in enrollment at Breaux Bridge Primary and the Jr. High school.

"We have to be competitive and we certainly have to make every effort to retain our students and this is one way that we that we hope to achieve mean", said the Dr. Beebe.

The board is meeting Wednesday night, the proposal is on the consent agenda, which means it's basically pre approved. However board members still have the option to consider or approve the reconfiguration.
