LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Construction is underway on the Lafayette Renaissance Charter Academy and Acadiana Renaissance Charter Academy.

Officials from the schools' management company, Charter Schools USA, held groundbreaking ceremonies Friday.

At the Lafayette Renaissance Charter Academy, workers are busy doing a "tilt-up," whereby large concrete panels are hoisted by cranes, forming the exterior of the building.

The Acadiana Renaissance Charter Academy is being built in Youngsville.

Both schools are scheduled to open in August for elementary students.
