GONZALES - The Ascension Parish School Board has picked CSRS, a Baton Rouge firm, to oversee rebuilding flood-damaged school buildings and seeking FEMA reimbursement dollars.

Chad Lynch, director of planning and construction for Ascension Parish schools, told board members at a special meeting Tuesday, CSRS was recommended by a selection panel of school district administrators.

A contract with CSRS will be negotiated in the coming weeks.

About $6 million of flood-remediation work by three national contractors at three primary schools, a middle school and a high school, as well as the district's distribution center in Sorrento, is drawing to a close and the district is looking at the next phase of recovery.
