Tuesday forum on attendance zones postponed

A community forum on proposed regional attendance zones at Southeast Middle School in Baton Rouge on Tuesday has been postponed and a new date has yet to be determined.

“We had some additional feedback from board members and parents that we wanted to include in the planning,” explained Susan Nelson, a spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish school system.

A similar community forum at Scotlandville Magnet High School in Baton Rouge at 6 p.m. Monday will occur as scheduled.

Staff from schools in the Scotlandville area also will meet at the same time at the Instructional Resource Center, 1022 S. Foster Drive, next door to the School Board Office.

These forums are following up on forums that were held in November in four areas of Baton Rouge that will be affected by the proposed changes.
