CENTRAL, La. (AP) - The Central School Board wants to make it much harder for people who live outside the school district to send their children to Central schools illegally.

The Advocate reports the school board's policy committee voted Wednesday to send a new "evidence of domicile" policy to the full board for consideration. 

It is to be introduced at the board's meeting Monday and will come up for final approval at a meeting on March 24.

Under the new policy, the parents of new students in the school system who own their homes will have to produce a certified copy of documents recorded with the East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court's Office showing ownership of the home or a property tax bill or homestead exemption for the most recent tax year.
