Lafayette Charter Foundation sets board meeting

The Lafayette Charter Foundation will hold a board meeting to discuss marketing plans for the two charter schools it plans to open in August at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Community Foundation of Acadiana.

The foundation has joined with charter management company Charter Schools USA to operate the schools.

The foundation board also will discuss staffing for both schools at its meeting and set its schedule for upcoming meetings.

Last month, the board approved lease agreements for the construction of two K-8 schools, one in Youngsville near Sugar Mill Pond and a second in north Lafayette in Couret Farms, off of Pont de Mouton Road.
