GRANT PARISH, La. (KALB) – There are some discussions happening in Grant Parish about the future of Colfax Elementary School.
Between hurricanes and the recent winter storms, the school has received a significant amount of damage.
Last week, the Grant Parish School Board brought up the possibility of closing the school and re-zoning students to Verda, South Grant, and Pollock Elementary next school year. There are also proposed ideas on converting the current Colfax Elementary School building to a virtual or alternative education site.
Parents and members of the community have been holding their own meetings to talk about this, preparing for a public meeting that is being held on Tuesday, March 30 at the school. The meeting will give everyone a chance to publicly comment on the proposed plan and receive feedback.
Below is a list of items to be discussed at the March 30 meeting that will take place at 5 p.m. at Colfax Elementary.
Items to be discussed include:
- Current status of Colfax Elementary
- Information related to School Choice
- Proposal to rezone Colfax Elementary students to Verda, South Grant, and Pollock Elementary to begin in the 2021-2022 school year.
- Proposed ideas on converting the current Colfax Elementary school building to a virtual or alternative education site.
