  • Alternate Student Assignment Plan


    On Wednesday, April 1, 2015, attorneys for the parties in the Joyce Marie Moore federal desegregation suit announced that they have reached an agreement to jointly request of the federal court that it allow the Tangipahoa Parish School Board to begin implementation of an alternative student assignment plan. That plan creates new school zones and new educational opportunities for students in an effort to enhance desegregation of public schools in the Parish.


    In a statement issued by Gideon Carter, III, counsel for private plaintiffs, and Ashley Sandage, counsel for the School Board, it was stated that “productive discussions” between the parties and continued assistance from federal court compliance officer Donald Massey have resulted in this agreement. If approved by the Court, the School Board will use the 2015-16 school year to notify parents and otherwise prepare for full implementation of the new student assignment plan beginning with the 2016-17 school year.


    The attorneys also announced that they intend to continue to meet on a regular basis to try to resolve remaining issues. Click here to see full plan.
