Lafayette school board opposes pending bills

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board has formally opposed pending state legislation that could affect its operations.

Four of the opposed bills are from state Rep. Nancy Landry. One would allow Lafayette Parish to have the option to change its form of school governance. Another bill would change the school board election cycle to align with statewide elections.

Another of Landry's bills did not specifically mention Lafayette Parish, but said no school board may remove a superintendent from office if the board "interfered with, compelled or coerced" or attempted to involve itself in a superintendent's personnel decisions.

The Advertiser reports
the board voted 7-1 Wednesday in opposition to the bills. The board also opposed a bill that, in part, calls for free transportation for charter school students.
