BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board has approved creating new magnet programs at Polk and Brookstown elementary schools.

The board also agreed to a proposal on Thursday to redraw attendance lines for Woodlawn Elementary, but only if the changes are phased in to allow current students to stay.

The changes take effect with the start of the 2014-15 school year in August.

Taken together, the three changes would cost an estimated $650,000 the first year and almost $2.3 million over three years. That's in addition to $3.1 million in renovations planned this summer at Polk and $5 million at Brookstown.
