The Orleans Parish School Board has announced that it is extending the deadline for public comments for the School Facilities Master Plan to October 17 at 5 p.m. Numerous criticisms have already been lodged against the new plan, so perhaps the present board is recognizing the need for more public input before passing any proposed plan, which will affect the citys public school landscape for decades.
Its no secret, however, that state Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek is intent on getting the plan approved before the new school board takes office. To let your voice be heard, you can email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via mail:
