EBR School Board propositions pass

Updated at 10:10 p.m. — With 277 of 277 precincts in East Baton Rouge Parish in, both EBR School Board propositions have passed.

Both are leading 72 percent to 28 percent.

“This is a community that invests in its children,” said EBR Superintendent Bernard Taylor on renewal of two property taxes. “Am I surprised? Absolutely not. It speaks well of the community as a whole that will not jeopardize the education of these children.”
