Board to get plans for school addition
BRUSLY, La. - Final plans for building a 13,000-square-foot addition to overcrowded Brusly Elementary School will be presented to the West Baton Rouge Parish School Board on Wednesday.
School Superintendent David Corona tells The Advocate that architectural designs will be submitted to the board along with a request to begin advertising for construction bids.
The School Board decided in September to hire the architectural firms Dean Hotard & Associates of Port Allen and Robertson Loia Roof Architects & Engineers of Atlanta to produce the preliminary size and cost plans for adding a wing to the school.
About 700 students attend Brusly Elementary, which was built in 1993.
The proposed wing would add about 14 classrooms along with restrooms and storage space for faculty and staff, Corona said.
