Lafayette school board approves school re-staffing

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) – The Lafayette Parish School Board has voted 5-4 in support of the implementation of collaborative teaching methods and an overhaul of staff at Acadian Middle School.

The Advocate reports Principal Linda Nance made the request to reconstitute or re-staff the school and incorporate team-teaching practices to better target and students' needs.

Nance told board members Wednesday it would cost about $250,000 to hire four additional teachers to create three-member teacher teams at the school.

Acadian's performance score of 76.2 earned it a D rating under the state's accountability system. The school's performance has continuously dropped over the past few years and was 85.1 in 2008-09.
