LAFAYETTE — The Lafayette Parish School Board will decide on a proposed redistricting plan and revisions to student dress code and discipline policies during its 5:30 p.m. meeting Wednesday.
A 4:30 p.m. public hearing on the proposed redistricting plan, which aligns the districts with the Lafayette Consolidated Council districts, will precede the Wednesday meeting.
During its regular meeting Wednesday, the board will consider student policy changes that offer principals greater flexibility in managing their individual school campuses.
For instance, each principal may decide whether students at his or her campus must tuck in shirts or wear belts.
While other policy revisions offer principals more options in disciplining students, expulsion would be off the table as part of the proposed discipline policy changes.
The support of new school-level health and wellness teams and additional resources at the district’s revamped alternative program, N.P. Moss Preparatory School, are expected to help students who need extra support in succeeding in the classroom, school officials have said.
