  • School Choice Program
    • Federal and state Public School Choice laws permit an eligible student to transfer from a school which receives low academic scores to an academically acceptable school of his/her parent's choice.  However, the Tangipahoa Parish School Board is subject to student assignment orders issued by the United States District Court in the desegregation case entitled Moore v. Tangipahoa Parish School Board, Civil Action No. 65-15556 (E. D. La) and, therefore, is compelled to comply with the student transfer provisions set forth in such orders and to refrain from adopting any policy inconsistent with those provisions.  Accordingly, because no "public school of choice" transfer is permitted by the Court's orders, no parent or legal guardian is authorized to enroll a student in public school of choice, as provided by either federal or state law.  Parents are encouraged to utilize other Court-approved transfers which may be available for their students under the desegregation orders.
