Central wants to toughen admissions policy

CENTRAL, La. - The Central School Board wants to make it harder for parents who live outside the school district to send their children to Central schools illegally.

The board's policy committee has voted to send a new "evidence of domicile" policy to the full board for consideration. The proposal is expected to be introduced at the board's meeting on Monday.

Under the new policy, parents of new students who own their homes would have to present a certified copy of ownership documents recorded with the East Baton Rouge Parish clerk of court's office or a property tax bill or homestead exemption for the most recent tax year.

Renters would have to provide a copy of the lease agreement.
