LAFAYETTE - The Lafayette Parish School System may soon partner with a company that seeks dropouts and gives them a chance to finish high school anytime and anywhere.

The company, The American Academy's No Dropouts program, works with school districts to bring dropouts back to school and provides educational and support services to those students.

Doug Bonner, the company's K-12 district dropout adviser for Louisiana, explained the company's services to the Lafayette Parish School Board during its Wednesday meeting. Board members plan to vote on whether to partner with the company at their next meeting on Nov. 28.

Bonner says the curriculum, instruction, materials and Internet-ready laptops are provided to students by the No Dropouts program.
