YOUNGSVILLE, La. (AP) — Youngsville Mayor Ken Ritter and City Council members are urging the Lafayette Parish School Board to build a new high school in their city. They say new families moving into the area should have the option to send their children to a public school nearby.
Ritter and City Council members wrote in a letter to the School Board late last week.
Recently, the school board completed expansions at Youngsville Middle and Green T. Lindon Elementary to alleviate overcrowding at those two Youngsville schools, but more facilities are needed.
High school students in Youngsville can attend public school at Comeaux (COH’-moh) High in Lafayette.
School Board Facilities Committee Chairman Jeremy Hidalgo tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1FuTXJ5) school building needs for Youngsville and south Lafayette are on the committee’s radar.
