2 Lafayette charter schools to open in July

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) – Preliminary work to prepare the sites of two new charter schools – Lafayette Renaissance Academy and Acadiana Renaissance Academy – is underway in Lafayette Parish.

Mary Louella Cook, board president of the two schools, tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1fhMI88 ) both schools are scheduled for occupancy in July.

Cook is president of the Lafayette Charter Foundation, which plans to open the two K-8 schools in August and a high school in 2017.

The foundation partnered with Charter Schools USA, a Florida-based charter management company to run the schools.

The board on Thursday discussed its marketing plans, which include an outreach by mail, broadcast media and informational sessions that will begin on Feb. 11.
