NEW ORLEANS - The Tangipahoa School Board has been ordered to place a tax proposition on the April 2011 ballot.

The order reinforces earlier court orders and the judge's statements when he warned the board that failure to put the measure on the ballot could result in court sanction.

The tax proposals include a 29.5-mill parishwide property tax and a 1-cent sales tax.

The two taxes must be passed together in order to help fund the parish's estimated $200 million
desegregation plan.
