Lafayette school board meets to lay out goals

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board met with Superintendent Pat Cooper to outline the progress members want to see in the school district in the upcoming school year.

They discussed on Thursday student test scores, drop-out rates, young students' readiness for school. They also touched on district funding and the lack of it. The board, which faces a $23 million shortfall in its general fund, hasn't decided how to close that funding gap.

This was the first meeting Cooper and the board have had to formally outline goals and objectives for the upcoming school year, though Cooper's contract states he and the board should meet annually to lay out the board's expectations.
