PLAQUEMINE- The Iberville Parish School Board has approved the district's school choice policy, which sets the standards by which students enrolled in Iberville schools with poor academic performance can transfer to better schools within the parish.
    
The board's 8-1 vote Monday night comes a year after Legislature mandated local districts give students more options at getting a quality education.
    
School districts' local polices are supposed to outline how districts will manage transfer requests in regards to athletic eligibility, transportation needs and school capacity stipulations.
    
The law gives parents the latitude to transfer their kids to a higher-performing school within their respective districts without regard to residential school system geographic boundaries or attendance boundaries.
