Lafayette schools list facilities they need

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) – The price tag to align the Lafayette school district's facility needs with its educational turnaround plan is about $384 million. That's according to a report from architects involved with the development of the district's master facilities plan.

The Advocate reports  the cost breaks down to $307.2 million in facility projects with $76.8 million set aside for contingencies.

Superintendent Pat Cooper presented the report Monday to the district's Community Education Plan Committee, which includes volunteers who have been meeting since March. Their mission is to align the educational and facility needs of the district and find a way to pay for it.

The turnaround plan lays out six years of initiatives and programs.
